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.

November 27 – Day 839

Joyce had a great weekend. We did her exercises and she is doing fine. Some days are better than others but that is to be expected. She watched TV for a couple of hours sitting up in her chair as she watched Justina decorate the tree. She had a episode Saturday right before bed where she had a coughing fit and everything came up but told her it is okay we will clean it up and we have plenty of clothes. At least it was before her medication so after that she slept well all through the night with no issues.

November 24 – Day 836

Joyce had a great day. We had the whole family together for thanksgiving Stephanie and mark, Justina and nick Joyce was happy to see everyone. She was very tired and slept most of the day. It was a little sense of our new normal and we make the best of it. Girls did the cooking and everything turned out wonderful. The worst thing about getting together is it has to end. I love and miss my girls every time they walk out the door to get back to their own lives and Joyce and I are overjoyed the women they have become.

November 16 – Day 828

Joyce had a great day. Joyce did all her exercises but she was very sleepy after that and she slept most of the day for her day caregiver. When I got home she wasn’t up very long and took another nap until bedtime. Her night was great and she slept very restful all through the night. Called a half of dozen agencies have narrowed it down to 2 for Joyce. The schedule will alleviate some stress on me and Justina as they will be filling those hours.
