James 2:17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is 1st of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
It was a somewhat peaceful day. Once I finally got Mike to bed, last night, he slept until 11:30 this morning, came into the living room and slept, on the sofa, until almost 1pm. I woke him to go to the chiropractor, he was a little grumpy. After the appointment we went to Old European for lunch, and there was so much food, we each ended up bring home leftovers. On the way out of the parking lot, Mike opened the car door! I stopped, found out he couldn’t get his seat adjusted. I convinced him to close the door and then I moved out of the driveway and parked. I got out and went around the car and adjusted his seat for him and off we went. (I dont know if there’s a way to lock the passenger front door, but I need to find out!)
I did a couple more stops, then home. Mike took a nap as soon as he could after getting in the house, when he woke up he wanted to take a walk, so we walked to the end of the driveway and back. Mike has never been a hand holding type of guy, but now, when we walk, he holds on tight.
Getting back to the house he started to get angry with me. He wanted his night meds at 6:30 and I told him no, not before 7:30. He demanded I leave extra meds on the coffee table for him to take when he decides. I told him no. His response was, ” you’re not the boss of me!” 😶😶 I didn’t say anything, but yes I am. At this point he is no longer capable of caring for himself.
I almost have the room ready for him on the main floor. The box springs and frame are in the upstairs hall and the mattress is propped against my bedroom wall. This weekend, Robert will get it together and Mike will then be on the main floor of the house. He’s not going to be happy, but that’s the way it has to be.
I am in uncharted waters, and I am praying for guidance as I go through this time
