December 13 – Day 855

Joyce had a great day. Even though it was a nasty rainy day Joyce was alert in the morning. We went to her appointment to her neurologist and she did Botox injections into her calf muscles. She did great with no problems she always does great with these appointments. She slept well through the night with no issues at all. Had to battle with the rain getting in and out of her appointment but Joyce never complains.

Continue to pray and send positive thoughts so that things continue to progress and that God keeps putting his loving hands on Joyce to heal her.

December 12 – Day 854

Joyce had a great day. She was really tired all day. Most of her exercises were done passively for range of motion. I think we will increase her fiber intake to 2 times a day having a little issue. After staying up all day and watching TV I assumed she would be tired. She slept well with no issues at all.

December 11 – Day 853

Joyce had a great weekend. The agency had to scramble to get someone on the afternoon Saturday because her regular caregiver was sick. I didn’t get upset because I told them weekends is nice if they can come but its not a necessity like during the week that’s is important. Joyce sat up all day Sunday watching say yes to the dress she enjoys that show. Exercises are going good the caregiver are getting the routine of the exercises. Joyce slept well all through the night.

December 8 – Day 850
Joyce had a great day. Joyce took some naps her and there throughout the day but she still was alert enough to finish 2 sets of all her exercises. Called some new agencies and a couple of them look promising. Joyce’s mood was good today and as we talked when Wendy was there she said that she didn’t trust the trainees that’s why she was upset so I put a stop to that. Her night was great she is sleeping soundly through the night.

December 7 – Day 849

Joyce had a great day. Everything was fine until the nurse came with a new trainee. Wendy said she did not want to leave Joyce. They could not transfer properly and Joyce knew it. Wendy said Joyce was on the verge of tears. So today I will be calling to get a new agency to work with Joyce this one is not working and I have notified her social worker on this program and she agrees. Joyce had a good night and slept well.

December 5 – Day 847

Joyce had a great day. Joyce was a little tired today so a majority of her exercises were done. The afternoon caregiver is getting more comfortable with transferring Joyce. She doing the exercise as prescribed and Joyce is comfortable with her. The night caregiver has got the routine that Joyce is accustomed too so that is good. Joyce slept well through the night with no issues. Hopefully tomorrow they will bring in new people to train so we have a staff of trained personnel for Joyce in case someone calls in sick or has any issues.

December 4 – Day 846
Joyce had a great weekend. First week with the CAP caregivers a couple were fine the other I told them to get rid of her. Luckily I was there and she couldn’t lift Joyce so she was no good to us. So with that lady and one calling out sick Sunday they did not give me a warm fussy feeling. I hired this agency so they would have staff if people called in sick. They are doing exercises twice a day so that is good. Joyce is sleeping restful at night. We watched x-mas movies Sunday and Joyce was singing Santa Claus is coming to town and I could hear all the words from her.

December 1 – Day 843

Joyce had a great day. We got an early start to go Joyce swallow study and see her ENT doctor. Joyce was great all the way up there and back no issues in the car. Her swallow showed progress her first to swallow with applesauce went down correctly with no issues. The speech therapist then kept giving her various thickness to tax her muscles then Joyce was having issues swallowing. So Joyce is good in the beginning but no endurance so we will continue to do her exercises because her doctor was very pleased.

November 28 – Day 840

Joyce had a great day. Her exercises were done and she had no issues with her food today. Met the nurse for the CAP program they will start tomorrow so we will have someone with Joyce from 730AM till midnight that way Justina and I can get some rest. Justina will come to visit and to help with her weekly shower so i think this is going to help us tremendously. Joyce slept well through the night she had a little coughing episode before bed but nothing at bedtime or through the night.
