Mid April 2015


Sometimes his memory is better than mine…..recently we were trying to remember which politician had recently died…and he remembered it.  I didn’t.  He’ll seem to be perfectly fine, but then something will happen that’s just a bit off or out of the norm. When we were at church last week, the usher came to give my husband the offertory basket,  instead of taking it, he waved the usher away as though he were a pesky fly….or salesman. He’s been more chatty than his norm and talking about his past job at times. On the plus side, he seems more relaxed and smiles more frequently. He will very occasionally have word-finding problems, but so do I.

Got up around midnight, turned on the light to look for his watch which he couldn’t find. Wandered in to the bathroom to look for it. On his way back to the bedroom, he spotted it on the nightstand. He said “Oh, there it is. I put it in a different place.”  He then went back to bed and was able to go to sleep.

Clothes Basket

Rummaging around in the dirty clothes basket. I asked him “What are you looking for?”  He said “Nothing” I said “Nothing? You’re rummaging around in the dirty clothes basket” He said ” I’m looking for an undershirt.” He had looked in the closet, but hadn’t been able to find one. There were 2 colored shirts in there, but they were kind of hidden under some other stuff and he hadn’t seen them. He normally would never search through  the dirty clothes to find something to wear.
