Today went well and tonight was EXCELLENT !

Monday, January 21, 2013

Quick blog.
Last night DH needed to get up, he used the whistle to waken me but he discovered I was very sound asleep.
He decided he could go it alone and he did. My Door was wide open and it still did not wake me up.

DH had a bad time last night with mask. Today I had made a special board out out of a plastic cutting mat on a cutting board from the kitchen I glued it with Duct tape and that way with NO RESISTENCE he has made great improvements.

It made it easier to slide his foot up the bed and I was able to note the inches he was able to pull it back. He has it at 90 degrees. WAY TO GO. I was proud and told him so.

I had him lie flat and suggested he uses the C-Pap machine for his nap and it worked.

He always said he could not use it lying on his back but he had sat up on pillows all week and this afternoons long nap convinced him he will be able to sleep on his back so his mask will stay put.

' HUGS I am off to bed after telling you the great NEWS, we are definitely gaining WOO HOO, thanks for the support and advice.

I rushed myself to get it in before midnight and by all of our clocks it was there but no this is Sundays Blog, and it was the most positive blog to date.
HUGS Pat .

    emoticon my friend!

I loved that EXCELLENT word in your title! It made me smile before I even read your blog. A good night's sleep is priceless!

My DH has had another illness; he is diabetic, and had a scratch on his leg which went into cellulitis. I have been quite scared as the doctor in Urgent Care gave me things to watch for and if they were to occur, I was to get him to the ER. Luckily, those things did not occur. We are visiting his PCP this afternoon to get it checked as Urgent Care strongly recommended, so I feel better about that. As I sat up in my recliner during the night, I thought about you, my good friend, and what good care you take of your DH, and thought to myself "I can do this, Pat does this!"

Take care, my good friend, and I am so very glad for that good news.

    You and hubby are both fantastic problem solvers. You must have been really exhausted and needed you rest. This should really boost both of your confidence. You are both doing great!

    Pat, what exciting news!!!! You both continue to make great strides. Fred is very lucky to have you and vice versa!!! Being able to use the C-pap will help him to sleep better and therefore, you will also. Going to start calling you "Nurse Pat"! You are truly a blessing.

hugs....Mary Anne

    That's great Pat. The exercises are really going to help his recovery. Good for you for being so helpful. The first few days after my surgery, my sister had to help me with my exercises, but after that I was able to do them on my own.

Hope you got a good rest. Have a wonderful Monday.
