(Sigh)

Exodus 15:2 The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.

Me and Mike, kayaking in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand October 2019

Mike slept really late today, he didn’t get up until almost 10 this morning. After breakfast he went upstairs to the bedroom to watch tv – the one in the family room is having issues – Mike stayed upstairs almost all day! He did come down to have dinner, only because I refused to allow him to eat on the bed.

After he went back up, the tv was so loud downstairs, it hurt my ears. I went up and closed the bedroom door, and he was sitting there eating cookies in bed – so I’m going to have to brush crumbs away to be able to get to sleep. 🙂

Mike keeps asking me for his evening meds, every night he asks, “Where are my pills?” and I tell him he’s already had them, he says okay and 5 minutes later he askes again. Now he’s unable? or cannot figure out? how to read a digital clock. He will stare at it, and then ask me what’s the time. I will tell him, and he usually says “oh!” puts the clock down and walks away. I think this is an important thing to let the neurologist know prior to our appointment on Friday. And I have so much anticipation, and anxiety, building up about this appointment! I am praying it goes smoothly, but I am somewhat doubting that Mike will be as compliant as I would like him to be. And this is why I have the anxiety. Oh Boy! Even our son has said he plans to be away from the house all day on Friday! I do have the number of a couple of people I can call if things get rough.

Tonight, at 11:30, I finally told Mike the tv must go off so I can finally get to sleep – he got upset with me. He sleeps in one of the guest rooms in the basement, and so he shuffled his way downstairs and, finally, I have some peace and quiet! I need to have lights out soon, because I know I will be up by 7 at the latest.
