Veronica's sleep patterns seem to be getting worse. Last night she was up 7 times between 12 am and 2.45 am . Although I was up for them all last night some nights she is out of bed without my being aware of it .She is especially confused in the night and although she can tell me the time can't relate it to reality i.e. not time to get up ! I went to the doctor to see if she would prescribe a sleeping pill but she said they would be of no use . So Now the OT and community matron are arranging to have a sensor monitor put in to record what her patterns are in the night . They suggested an awake night sitter for a couple of nights to start with but then I pointed out that those could be the very nights there is little movement so this system is going to be in for two weeks . Veronica has also taken to calling for me by name in her sleep which is a ****** as I race downstairs only to find her asleep .! Does any one else have similar night patterns and has anyone had sleeping pills prescribed ? I hear her bed side light go on over the baby alarm and I have to admit that I am now not rushing down every time she gets out of bed although I know she is in danger of falling . On the other hand she often gets out of bed and falls before I can get to her - that happens in the day time too . So what on earth does one do ?
