Today has been a grand day. Praise and worship help renew my spirit and lift me out of the sorrow. Mike has had a good day today, he’s been engaging and more articulate than recent days past. All together, it helps make the journey easier to bear when there are respites from all the turmoil. I am still going to go to the doctor’s office tomorrow and see if there is anything I can do when he gets so belligerent!
After lunch, I began to clean and organize my office. I have to be prepared for the 31st! I’ve made significant progress, but there’s still a ways to go. However, once that room is completed, I’ll be ready to begin hanging pictures, and decorations, on the walls. We’ve been in the house for over a year now – though we did take 2 full months off last year to go on a trip to Australia and New Zealand for our 50th anniversary.
As things are slowly progressing in the house, they are also slowly regressing for Mike’s memory. In the meantime, he sits and reads, or watches tv. I need to see if I can find some kind folks who would be willing to come around and engage him in conversation, take him out for lunch, or coffee and just be here occasionally. It’s been a great day. Have a good evening.
