Hello?? Can you hear me?

Ephesians4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

Mike holding my hand in the ER

Mike fell in the middle of the night. I didn’t see anything when I check him, about, 2 am; when he woke up his head and bedding were covered in blood. His hair matted with it. He refused to let me clean it, and we ended up in the ER. It was a traumatic day.

In the middle of giving out information, I fainted! Not a good thing to do when you’re the caregiver and information giver. They rushed me to another ER room and took care of me, while attending to Mike

An oncall doctor for Dr. Britt, gave Mike a prescription to help calm him, but I think it’s made him worse. I am stopping it as of tomorrow morning.

While we were at the ER, Phil, & Paola, cleaned up the mess from the bedding. It was pretty much dont by the time we got home. I fell asleep within 15 minutes of getting to the house, and slept until 7:30. When I got up, Paola was trying to make Mike’s bed, and I helped her and then, felt like going to sleep again.

Robert is spending the night and allowing the rest if us to rest. ❤ Tomorrow, we will be discussing hiring a CNA to come in and help with Mike and looking into my getting some respite care.

Things are progressing quite rapidly ☹ For all intents and purposes, my husband is gone – all I have left is this non-functioning body of the man I’ve spent almost 52 years with.
