2 more nights left
Well I got through 2 nights. I won't even bother to tell you how hard it has been on my back. I am counting down the days. Work has been busy with little emergencies off and on all night that makes the night go fast. Then its home to give Zoey her breakfast and meds and see how MIL did. Sleep for as long as possible then go to MIL's help with supper and whatever and then work.
My MIL has been confused off and on for the last 3 days. Ornery confused. Took off her dressing, refused to take her meds, but then demands her pills 10 minutes later. Wants to go to bed and then 10 minutes later wants up. She has a totally flat affect. No emotion what so ever. No smiles, no frowns, nothing and she has taken to repeating everything over and over. I am thinking her kidneys are shutting down and she is getting confused from the toxins building up. It is no longer safe to even run to the store while she is napping as she is very likely to get up immediately and wander around not using her walker.
So last night I made arrangements for an LPN to come in when we need to leave her. That way when Rick needs to come here to take Zoey out and give her her meds while I am working someone will be there or when he has to go to the store someone will be there. This is only for the days I am working but that way I can keep working for as long as possible. She has repeatedly said how sick she is of the whole thing. I don't blame her.
Well, I amgoing to bed. It is dark and rainy here, perfect for sleeping. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
