This week I was almost exclusively busy organizing the various appointments for Mr. G. He has to do 4 examinations because unfortunately the neurologist has diagnosed a beginning of Parkinson's. There are various types of Parkinson, he doesn't tremble at all, but is confusing time and days. Not all the time but especially in the morning and evening, he also doesnn't walk very well and is very slow.
That was a shock for me, of course, but there are very good medications today, which can help to lead a normal life. I also have a nurse from the social service who comes twice a week to prepare the medication so that he does take them correctly. She also has to take care of his room. I'll see how it works, maybe she has to come more often. I have not the physical strength to take care of an 1.89 m tall man. I try to be strong, but sometimes I it's just too much. Our son lives far away and the borders are closed and anyway he doesn't help me and cheer me up a bit. He always had a "strong" mother and now he has difficulties to see that she is not that strong ! Fortunately I have my friends who help me and listen to my worries.
I try to continue my usual lockdown life and we continue our Corona babble club and our Scrabble. That does me real good to have a break and get some fun. I can't get a burn out now, so I try to protect myself as much as I can. Then once he has his medication, I hope it will be normal again.
He likes to be alone at home and watches TV or sleeps. So there is no problem.
Today I had my car washed because I have to go for the technical survey of my car, the first time is after 4 years and then each year at the same date. Apparently they have changed now and after the 5th year it's all two years when you have to check it again.
I don't think there is something at my car, but you never know.
The weather is wonderful we nearly have summer temperatures and I could easily take a sunbath if I would have the time. Today the beach bed arrived just in time ! so I can take some Vitamine B on our terrace. As it is only end February the stores don't have beach beds in stock so I ordered it on internet and was happy that it was even with a sun protection, I don't like the sun shining on my head.
