There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
WE LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US
1 John 4: 9-10

Can't Sleep Again

11:26 pm and I can't sleep. Mom is sleeping so sweetly. Her UTI is so much better. And she has been happy and talking a lot. Can't make out all she says but she is sure talking to someone about something and smiling while doing it.
 I turned her and changed her around 9:30 and just peeked in at her and she looked so comfy. I will need to turn and change her again soon. And than hopefully I will be sleepy.
Usually I have nothing to do except care for mom and wait on the aid or nurse to come visit her but tomorrow I have two Doctor's appointments and I can't sleep . Isn't that the way it always turns out? I did not drink a late Cherry Dr Pepper either so it must just be nerves. Since caring for mom my old body is giving out. I have a naval hernia so have to get an ultra sound and see whats going on with that and it is time for my yearly Mammogram. Not sure how they got set for the same day but I guess it works out good . They will be over with all in one day. And they are close to the mall so in between appointments I believe a visit to the mall is in order don't you? Maybe lunch. My sister will wonder what has happened to me.
 Time to go bug mom again. I bet she won't be happy. Have a great evening.

  2. Hope your appointments went well today AND you had some free time to escape before returning home. I can only imagine how tied down you feel at times. God has given you the gift of patience to be able to care for your mom. I hope one day your family will recognize what you have been able to give your mom and them.

  3. Oh Karen..... don't we hate it when we want to sleep and we can't. That happens to me more nights than I'd like to admit.

    I'd say it's good your getting your doctor appointments over with all in one day.

    It's so good to hear that your mom is having happy conversations with herself.
    Take care, and I hope your appt's. go well.

  4. Karen, I'm so sorry our mom has been ill. I hope by now she's feeling better and that you're back to getting a little bit more sleep. Stay strong. My prayers are with you.
