I was worried about him last night and I kept going in to make sure he was ok.
He fell asleep earlier than usual but he is still very tired.
He slept pretty well for the first time in awhile and I’m glad he did. I think he needs to sleep a lot to try to get back what he lost from his kidney infection.
It seems to have taken a lot of strength from him.
He walked yesterday at the hospital for about 10 minutes, then came back and fell asleep. He took 3 naps waiting for the discharge papers.
We’re going to the doctor this morning, then to walmart for prescrips then home.
Just doing that should make him really tired.
I’m glad to have him back home and our doggies are too.
Nate and I forgot his walker was in the dining room last night. About 12:30 I heard a crash and so did our littlest doggie. She was freaking out.
I got up to see what it was. It was Nate.
He decided that since he was doing so well he would get more adventurous.
He decided to see if he could walk to the bathroom holding onto furniture and walls.
He forgot he had Ambien in his system and was really tired.
He lost his balance, hit his shoulder on the desk, then landed on his left knee and hip.
His balance is still really iffy so trying to walk without something to hold onto with both hands doesn’t work yet.
He sat there for a minute looking disgusted, then got on his knees and crawled back into his room and got himself up on his recliner. I went and got his walker. He was in a lot of pain but nature was calling.
We have another walker in the clubhouse here. I think I will go get an extra one to keep here. I sure don’t want that happening anymore.
I suppose its to be expected that sooner or later he was going to try to do things he’s not ready for. I guess he had to find out.
His shoulder hurts today as well as his knee and hip.
He’s not moving around much.
It should be ok by monday though. He says he will be doing the steps again. He will feel better then.
That’s the right attitude.
