5 Days and Counting

1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

Mike and me in Hawaii 2016

Mike was awake at 6:30, and woke me up doing stuff in the kitchen. I got up and dressed, and by 6:45 I was downstairs, only to find he’d gone back to bed. Since I was wide awake, I stayed up – finished cleaning up from yesterday, and then sat down with a cup of hot tea.

Mike was up again at 9:30, poured himself some coffee, and sat down on the sofa to promptly fall asleep until 10:30. He sat up, took a swallow of coffee, and laid back down and back to sleep. I was wondering if he’d gotten ahold of any medications without my knowing, but I haven’t found anything that would prove he had. I am concerned about all the sleeping.

Mike asked if I could start making salads for dinner, and I’m okay with that. Usually he has no desire to eat, so I am happy with fixing something he wants! He likes that I add fresh fruit, like strawberries, mangos, and apples to a tossed green salad, and then I usually top it with grilled chicken. I think I may try some grilled flank steak for a change, and see if he likes that.

Mike has begun to not be able to read the clock properly. He says he can’t make out the numbers – I’ve watched him pick up the clock and look right at it, and then ask me what’s the time. Tonight, at 10:30, I was getting ready to lay down and I heard him coming upstairs. I went out to the hallway and asked him what he needed. He wanted to know if we were doing anything tomorrow – I told him no, and he said okay – but as he walked downstairs he was muttering about going to PT tomorrow. It will be interesting to discover if he will wake me at 3 or 4 to go to PT. Since we see the neurologist on Friday, it will be something I’ll need to let him know about, if it happens. I have sent various notes to the doctor over the course of the last 6 months about issues, and situations, that have concerned me with Mike, and he’s been diligent to get back to me when it’s needed. These last 2 weeks, I want to be specific, and take a detailed account of a few things into the office the day before Mike’s visit. This will give the doctor a chance to look over my concerns prior to our appointment and we won’t have to discuss them in front of Mike. Mike gets really upset when he doesn’t remember something and I am talking to the doctor about it.
