Evaluation Day

Today was the evaluation for the memory care facility. Mom was upbeat and smiling, very friendly. It was quite apparent that she has dementia though. So now we wait for an opening.

It's a beautiful day here, sunny and warm with a cool breeze blowing. I haven't had to turn on the AC. Mom has been fussy however. Her shoe comes off and she gets very upset about it. She also woke up at 3:00 AM which means that I once again didn't get a full night's sleep and it's taking it's toll. I feel like a walking zombie. I try to nap during the day but Mom gets fussy. It can't go on for much longer.

Robyn, I'm sending you a BIG HUG today. Keeping you both in thought and prayer. I hope you are able to sleep a full night tonight. I do understand, only too well what you are going through.
