Mike's condition is worsening. His meds, given every one and half to two hours, are not working a lot of the time, and he goes into a non-responsive state that is very scary. Last night and today he was like that for 15 hours straight. We couldn't give meds, and without meds he cannot come out of it. I thought I'd go mad. We get whatever we can into him, it can take an hour as he cannot swallow. I better not go any further, it is too upsetting. So anyway, I've mostly been in the front of the house with him and not able to answer any posts.
The last few months have been so hard that I am completely exhausted and fall asleep all hours of the day and evening. I am mostly up at night to care give. I read a funny post on Facebook, how do you fall asleep in a chair? The answer is sit in the chair and be old. Maybe that's part of it. Do any of you fall asleep at the drop of a hat, like I'm now doing?
Carol, I'm so sorry, more than sorry, you're going through this hard time. I guess we have to take one day at a time, and enjoy what we can. Remember I am thinking of you and feel close to you, tho we are far apart. That includes the rest of you, I am grateful we're still together on da Stoop.
If I have a spare minute, I will try to figure out how to re-register, so I can post from the laptop.
