So who sleeps? Consider this another documentation post.
When I talked to Dad last night at 7 o’clock, I hadn’t heard him moving much during the day. I woke him up and he said he was really tired and was going back to sleep, he said he hadn’t eaten – but you never know with him. He was really confused about what time it was and kept thinking it was morning. But, I do that too if I fall asleep after dinner. Other than sounding tired and confused, he didn’t seem that different from his usual self.
Nevertheless, I spent the night worrying and not getting much sleep myself. I half expected to either find him dead this morning or having to get him to the hospital. I found the power of attorney papers – so at least I know where they are now. I waited until 9:30 or so this morning to check on him in case he really was just sleeping.
Anyway, he sounds okay this morning. Sort of. He doesn’t understand why the meals on wheels folks won’t be delivering him lunch but told me he’d get something to eat.
I can’t live this way.
