Kenju....I did as you suggested and called the nurse.  We have a new appointment on the 6th and she was able to help me with the meds.  Most of them were medications he had received at the clinic and I was just able to get refills.  The others are the anti-psychotic drugs and  I have enough of them to last until the 6th.  The doctor has to see him before he can write new prescriptions but we have time. Soooo all my anxiety was for nothing.

I have my older brother looking into a couple of nursing homes nearby but that would be my last resort.  I took Mike out to eat last night and I thought we were going to have a scene.  He got very argumentative about wanting to give the busboy a $20 tip.  He embarassed the poor kid and I thought I was going to have to call Ron to meet us there after work but I finally got Mike calmed down and just told him he's "not in charge"......I am.  It's a minute by minute challenge with him.  One minute he seems like the old Mike and the next he is saying crazy things that make no sense.

My daughter is meeting me this afternoon to help me get the spare room cleaned out and ready to paint.  As soon as I get that room ready Ron will move his furniture in and start staying there at night with Mike.  That will sure give me a break and make going to work easier as well.  I just don't know how long Ron will be able to do it.  We shall see!  ONE DAY AT A TIME....that's my motto!

When I get a chance I need to figure out how to use my new camera I got from Julie/Larry for Christmas!  Love it!  Just not smart enough to figure out how to use it.  I need lessons!  Jamie got me a digital frame to display the pictures I take once I learn how to take them.........

Well, I'm taking an hour for myself and going to soak in the tub before I get over to Mike's house.  Ron dropped Mike off this morning so I would have a little time for myself this morning and I'm not going to waste a minute of it.

I am so glad Ron is making it possible to give you some relief. You can not go on at this pace with out a break.
Please take better care of yourself.
