So frustrating! G is a smart man and sometimes that can be good and at others down right bad. We've both been sick since thanksgiving. We've had the norro-virus. Started feeling better from that on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday we both started with an upper respiratory virus. Not fun. Needless to say, g's been very weak. His gait already unsteady has become increasingly so. He has walked, bumped, or tripped over anything and everything. Tonight I wanted to go to bed early. He wanted to watch the news. A compromise. ..we'll tape it. Now I set it to record, go to turn out the light and ask g to stay still right where he is for a matter of however long it takes me to turn on the overhead light in the next room, but nooooo he can't do that. He has to follow me, with the dog walking around in front of him. ..IN THE DARK!! ARGH! When I asked him why he didn't stand there? His reply, "I could see just fine" ....as he bumps into the door frame of the bathroom.
