This and That

Romans 5:1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ

Mike trying some vegemite on a cracker October 2019

Mike slept until 10:15 and when he got to the main floor of the house he asked how soon would he be picked up. I asked “why?” and he said, “you know, I’m going with, you know, them” I pondered a few moments and then realized he thought the guys were going to be picking him up today. So I asked, “Do you mean Rick?” He nodded and I told him he went to lunch with them yesterday, they weren’t coming today. He didn’t remember he’d gone to lunch yesterday and he argued with me a few minutes saying, “No, today I go to lunch.” I then reminded him which restaurant he went to and again told him that was yesterday. He gave a big, frustrated, sigh and headed to the family room.

Robert showed up this afternoon and spent about an hour putting together the tall cabinet for my office. It’s not completed, but he just has to put on the back and the doors, then put it into place in the office. I am hoping to be able to empty a couple more boxes once it’s in place.

Mike is more determined than ever to purchase a truck! I have reached the point where I really must make an appointment to go in and talk to the doctor, I am hoping Robert will be able to go with me, and I am going to try to get the appointment on a day he is usually off work. I think it will be important for the doctor to know we are adamant about keeping Mike, and the public, safe!

I contacted the John Deere dealer about our ride mower – it is still a week out from being looked at to try to determine what’s going on with it. Once it’s home again, I will have to make sure it’s parked in a good spot before we lose the keys! And I don’t know if there is a spare key anywhere, so I have to begin looking for it now.

All in all, I am realizing that Mike is spending a minimum of 85% – 95% of each day sleeping! He’s up just enough to eat a little, and then right back to sleep. Sometimes he will turn on the tv and manage to watch a small amount of a program before dozing off in the lounge chair, and that’s okay. The only time he is really awake is going to an appointment, and he usually wants to get home right after so he can lay down again.

Mike has been in bed for at least 2 hours now, and I’ve decided I need to turn out my lights for this evening.
