adventures @ midnight

Let your good day become a GREAT day!

Some nights, this mantra has been the only thing that gets us through it… and there’s been a lot happening in the last month or so.  More lucid dreams, hallucinations, wanderings, and conversations…  and they only happen between midnight and 3 am.

So…. We’ve tested pressure pads and detection alarms hoping to find the one(s) that will work best for us in keeping Mom safe as long as she continues to wake at night and feel the need to “take care of something.”  I wish she could tell me about her more lucid dreams and what she needed to take care of.  As it is, I can only  tell her “thank you” for being so responsive to a need and wanting to help; then gently encourage her to go back to bed and get some rest… hopefully, that rest will last a little more than an hour before the next “alarm” sounds.

I’m grateful for technology that helps us keep our home safe and keep Mom safe.  I’m grateful that even with our sometimes too frequent midnight adventures we can open our eyes, be grateful and smile that we have one more day with Mom.
