Seeing as I haven’t slept, I went to the store without makeup on this morning at 6am for my ill grandmother and I’ve been more than just a caregiver…but an actual “nurse” to her today, I’m having a hard time coming up with a happy thought. I guess my happy thought is that even though she’s in immense pain, she’s able to take a nap…since she didn’t sleep a wink either (last night.) I’m hoping she feels better, and won’t need to go to the hospital. We think we have it bad enough with her forgetfulness thanks to dementia, and her syncope which causes her to pass out at the most inconvenient times….we really don’t need this added stress! The doctor has her on a liquid diet, and I wish my liquid diet consisted of a shot of patron.
