I’m late posting today but I forewarned you last week I might be.
As it turns out while it’s been really busy with my brother being gone, it’s also been going really well.
Mom has not been confused once so far. She is sleeping better at night. I’m hoping the “cocktail” I have her on is working. I think though it might be more a combination of things:
- Her “happy light” that shines on her for thirty minutes in the morning. (I bought mine through Amazon.)
- The fact that I’ve kind of kept her busy and distracted.
- The fact that she’s had a lot of people coming in and out.
- Who knows?
For me, I believe prayer is the biggest explanation. But remember when we pray for something, it almost always means we will be required to participate in some way. If you want to read more on prayer, just search the word and you’ll find lots of posts.
For now, I’m not going to over-analyze. I’m just very grateful that the week is going well.
You know my mom has been diagnosed with dementia. We have seriously questioned that diagnosis and even her caregivers question it and they had their share of dementia patients. If you’ve been reading my posts about my mom, you know I”ve been all over the place, accepting it one minute, and denying it the next. We know the confusion is real at times but physical illnesses other than dementia can cause confusion.
It doesn’t matter in the final analysis because my brother and I are committed to keeping her in her home as long as we can.
So bear with me this week. I’ll do my best to post every day.
I hope your day is going well. Everybody has “something” don’t they?
God bless and have a good day.
PS I think our new floor gets installed tomorrow. I’m taking pics so I can show you. I am so excited although the timing is not good. Will tell you about that later.
