View From My Window

Thursday, October 6, 2022 — Home for the rest of the day/evening; neurologist appt. went o.k. He put Robert on SEROquel,, a medication that is supposed to ‘clear his mind’ while he sleeps at night. I hope so… Follow up appointment in 3 months — in JANUARY 2023! I heard the receptionist and just froze. Yep, the year is just about over. I swear this one went faster than any before.

For all my feeling that time is rushing past, Robert says he feels like it’s slowed down. He said the trip back home took forever, and he commented the other day that he would look at the clock and realize a sports program he wanted to watch would be on in 10 min. and when he thought 10 min. had passed, he’d look at the clock and only one or two minutes had gone by. We mentioned this to his dr. this morning but the dr. didn’t really comment on it.

Last night I finished the quilt for our elder son’s neighbor. It turned out really long and I hadn’t meant for it to be this long, but it is what it is. I still have some of the theme fabric left, but not enough for another quilt. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I’ve picked out fabrics and a pattern for the next quilt. It won’t be nearly as big as this last one.

Not much else to report so will close this for now. Be safe, take good care of yourself and remember to tell those you love that you love them.

UPDATE — I gave Robert his evening pills and should have waited and given them to him after his shower. He’s fast asleep in his chair and when I went to wake him and asked him if he wanted to go to bed, he mumbled that he wanted to stay where he was. I won’t give them to him as early tomorrow night. Lesson learned.

    I like the long quilt. It looks warm and cozy. I hope the new medicine for Robert helps him out. I think the year has gone by way too fast. It seems like we just began 2022 and it is nearly over.

    Lovely quilt, T. Funny about your husband’s falling asleep. Mine just came in to tell me that if he fell asleep in front of his TV to just let him sleep there. Oh, me.

      LOL… my husband said the same thing this morning and I told him he looked too uncomfortable — made me feel guilty. We’ve decided that he needs to take that new medication the LAST thing of the day and he should be close to the bed when he takes it! LOL
