I slept late this morning, then decided to wait to walk the dog until he indicated he wanted to go out. Well, I waited and waited, but no signs of life. He was still in bed snoozing. He finally he got up and I thought he would finally want to go out, but no... he just wanted to sleep in my lap. Around 2pm, I figured we had waited long enough and dumped him off my lap to get ready to go out. He must have been about ready, because he led the way for the entirety of our 1.5 hour walk. Went right to my SIL"s house after our walk for a big family dinner. I had forgotten to eat lunch while I was waiting for Cooper to get up, so I was pretty hungry. My SIL has MS, and controls some of her symptoms with diet, so food at our family dinners is pretty healthy these days. Lots of fruits and vegetables, with everything steamed or baked. We did have cookies for dessert, but they were still pretty healthy.
After getting 2 hours of sleep on Friday night I was concerned about how much I would need last night. I wasn't tired, and stayed up until about 2am, but then I got about 9 hours of sleep, followed by several hours of lazing around waiting on the dog. So, I am rested and recharged. I worry when I can't sleep because that can be a cause or trigger of symptoms. Thankfully that doesn't seem to be the case this time. I am still doing well.
