A hard week for Mike

John 15:13 This greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

A memory. Our grandkids a few years ago

We left the resort and headed home. Stopping at one restaurant, the wait, once seated, was at least an hour to get your food. We left. Then we stopped for coffee, and headed back to Coeur d’Alene. I got Mike to the Bennett House and he refused their lunch. 🤔 Later he told me it was to bland. I told him it was protein and he needs to be sure and eat the protein. We ended up going to Elmer’s. We both had the chicken fried steak dinner, and Mike only ate the steak.

When we got home and he sae his room had been moved he asked my why didn’t I discuss it with him 1st. I told him, “No matter what I say, suggest, or recommend, your first words are ‘No’ or ‘hell no’ This is for your safety, the doctor doesn’t want you climbing stairs as much.” (This is also for me, when he’s having difficulty on the stairs, I am unable to assist him. I just don’t have the strength.)

Then Mike saw there was a door blocking the stairs going to the family room 🙄 He was totally livid. He kept telling me how he’s now blocked from a full half of his own home. I again told him it was for his safety. He was trying to put his shoes on, and he stopped, looked at me, and asked me to help him. Of course, I did.

He asked me about his MRI and I told him Dr. Britt had called and said the dementia was progressing and getting worse. He became very quiet, took his shoes off and went to bed.

This will be a very hard week for him, overall. The next ‘announcement ‘ I have to give him will be this Wednesday, around 3. That is when he will discover the doctor has mandated him as incompetent and needing a guardian. 🥺 He will be meeting his court appointed attorney also. Heavy happenings. I am praying he will accept this without a fight, and allow this transition to be a smooth one.

In the meantime, I have some cleaning up to do from all the drywall dust, and all the furniture being moved around. I am hoping that soon my home will be settled.
