On the upside...I am gaining back some of my independence...I can dress myself...get in and out of bed and pull my own toilet paper (stop laughing already....that is a HUGE accomplishment...just sayin). These may not seem worth mentioning but with VoR going back to work....these are huge hurdles to get over before he leaves. He has been the BEST NURSE EVER!!!!!
Now you add to all that schmutz...the sudden and total exhaustion that comes out of nowhere wiping me right out and causes me to stop everything and sleep...NOW!!!...you have a pretty good snapshot of my day. Today for example...I was in the middle of this post and BOOM!!!! I had to sleep....4 hrs later I am back to finish it. It is the craziest thing cause I am so NOT a napper....it has made me understand my dad better.
He was notorious for falling asleep anywhere anytime...typing letters, watching TV, middle of conversations and watching slides (old school...way before digital photos were even were thought of). He used to believe that standing up would keep it from happening when in actual fact...it just made his sudden napping that much funnier. We would be checkin out family photos and suddenly you would hear him "sashaying" across the floor trying to get his balance after falling asleep standing up....still make me giggle just thinking about it. It was so endearing but up til now a totally foreign concept to me. He was always such a good sport as we teased him and always laughed right along with us. Now that I am having the same issues (even just temporarily) it really does happen that fast and is totally annoying...but it is what it is
My daddy....is still such a true HERO to me!!!
