Well this is my last day of near normality, Keith is coming home tomorrow from his two weeks of respite! He was a bit unsettled for the first couple of days but soon settled in! I have missed him so much but then I have for a long time now, but I certainly haven't missed PSP,
All of the people at the care home were lovely with him and have grown quite fond of him I think. Unusually there is another man with PSP in the home permanently, you don't come across that one very often do you, but I think he's further on in this dreadful road and it was quite scary to see the similarities in him and Keith.
I've visited him for about three hours in the early evening every day, probably not the best idea but my heart wouldn't let me do otherwise. I've had a very mixed two weeks spending time with family and friends, (I managed to have my little munchkin Callum stay overnight with me which I absolutely loved) and getting to do those long awaited jobs that I just couldn't get round to e.g. power washing my patio and garden furniture which for some strange reason I love doing (sometimes I wish I could bring it indoors but it's probably not a very good idea!)
Hopefully neat respite time I will be a bit more organised and maybe even go away for a few days, we'll see when the time comes!
So here I am, watching the X factor, glass in one hand, "magic puffing machine" in the other ( an e-cigarette for those that don't know!) enjoying the last evening of "free from dreaded loo trips". Going to have an early night and hopefully at the very least twelve hours peaceful sleep!
Lots of love to you all....A very refreshed Pat! xx
