THE ELEPHANT AND INCHWORM GET A REST

                                                  
Yes, they rested that is just what John did yesterday.  He ate and he rested.  And I feel it was a good idea.  Daughter Holly came to visit and later Megan and Harper came for another visit.  


Poor Meg, she has never seen her capaw confused and tears come to her eyes as he was acting strange late in the afternoon. Actually, it was hard on me too.  It's like reasoning with a child.  I know this will not last, but when I am trying to convince John that he should not eat plastic, it's hard.  If I were not tired, I have a feeling that it would be a bit humorous.  Maybe I should document that with pictures....OH NO.


Actually, the next morning he can recall some of this confusion!  He tells the day nurses about it.  Many times all I need to say to him is "it is late afternoon and this is the time you get confused."  The light bulb comes on and he nods in reply.  


The realtor shows the house today, so I am home this morning to spiff up the floors, dust and sweep,  Then comes the mowing as soon  the dew is off the grass.  If I am lucky, I will be able to get to the hospital before he has confusion time this afternoon.    Right now, I'm just sitting here in my chair and chilling out.  I think it is decompression day.  


A friend and I were talking and she said we need to pray that the house sells by May 4.  If it does not and John is home, it may be mighty hard to get him out of the house every time they show the house.  Well, God knows what he is doing and, as a dear friend would say, I am going to FROG it.  FROG? I will fully rely on God!


Have a wonderful Sunday and God Bless

  1. FROG - I like that one. And rest for both of you is a very good thing. I know that this is so hard for both of you - I watched my Dad and Mom struggle with Mom's alzheimer's. But the life lessons we learned were amazing. My Dad was never ever a patient person but boy did he learn that lesson well. It was wonderful to see the growth we had through that time. I'm praying for the same with our upcoming battle.

  3. Today is Sunday -- a day of rest. I'm praying the house sells quickly, but, as you've pointed out, it's all in God's planning! In the meantime, FROG! I love that!

  4. I hope it sells by then too! It would be a big step to lighten your load. Would you move into the RV, or find an apartment until John is better?

    Will this confusion last?

    Better than the knitting term of "frogging" ... rip-it rip-it rip-it out! LOL

  7. That confusion must be very hard on both of you. Perhaps when he is in a more familiar environment, it will not be as bad. Still holding you both in prayer. I think you need to decompress once in a while. You need to remember to take care of YOU too.
