Drowsiness, fatigue, sleepy, lethargic, tired…These don’t even begin to describe the side effects Vince is having from all of his nerve pain medications. From nodding off while eating to nodding off while trying to take a simple glucose check, it is never ending. The poor guy is so tired he falls asleep sitting upright in his desk chair. Throughout the day, I call him to remind him to take his meds. If I call him and catch him in his sleep, sometimes he doesn’t even hear the phone or he doesn’t know who I am for a few seconds. Talk about a deep sleep!
Notice how much I am using the word hope in this post today? Well, I just noticed and I guess my writing is really reflecting my (along with Vince’s) state of mind. We have lots of hope, that one day (hopefully soon (there I go again lol)) he will start to feel less pain and be a little more comfortable. One day he won’t have to brace himself 24/7 for that shock that is about to come on in his leg, or that rain storm that is expected in the week to come, knowing it will throw his body for a loop. This is no way for someone to live and it’s not something that someone should have to watch a loved one go through.
