Psalm 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.
Monday night, I talked with Mike’s workman’s comp attorney and that precipitated my making a point to get the power of attorney, and the durable, medical, power of attorney signed so I am the responsible advocate for Mike. It took some doing, but I got it done. The next step in the process is to get Mike to talk to the doctor and see if any of his previous, settled claims from the fire department could be a contributing factor to the condition we are now dealing with – frontal lobe degeneration. A form of dementia. Last night I couldn’t sleep, I prayed, and mulled this over and over to try to figure out how to get Mike to comply with this request – he has no idea I’ve even spoken to his attorney! Finally! A possible solution to this came to me, and I promptly fell asleep. Only to wake up 3 1/2 hours later for the day! I managed to get everything done that I needed to and I had hoped Mike and I would go to church for Wednesday night services, but he told me he’s more comfortable at home and didn’t want to go out. So we stayed in.
I worked on my project of filling shoe boxes for Samaritan’s Purse, and then Mike wanted to watch tv with me so I went to the family room with him and we watched a couple of hours together. I ended up almost dozing off, and I told him I needed to get my shower and go to sleep already. He kissed me on the cheek and said good night.
I need to be up early tomorrow to work on the driveway, Mike’s just not able to get it done and I don’t want him trying. It’s to difficult for him anymore. Between the pine needles and tree leaves, there is quite a mess to clean up!
So I am going to bed really early tonight, so I can be up really early in the morning! It’s been a great day. Have a good evening.
