sleeping

Mom has been sleeping in the daytime much more these days than before.  “I don’t know why,” she says.  Since her fall in the tub a few months ago, she’s been tired and has taken naps more often.

Today I got in at 5:30PM and found out from Floyd that she’d been asleep “for quite a while.”

The evening before yesterday she walked to bed, not needing Floyd to push her in her office chair.  “I just forgot and did it myself,” she said yesterday, quite happy with herself.  Good!

So it’s one step forward and one step back.

update, chest pain

Mom seems to do well these days.  She made gravy from Sunday’s turnkey dinner.  She’s walking back and forth more.  Unfortunately, she had chest pains this morning that lasted 45 minutes.  Level: 10.  <sigh>  Not good.  But this doesn’t happen very often.  Here are Mom & Floyd watching Jeopardy on TV.
