Today was tough as Sandi was very much out of it. She knew who we were when we came to visit, but little else. She has no memory of calling me three times late last night sure stuff was missing from her room nor does she remember how upset she was with me or anything else. There were times today when she used the wrong word for something (using "shoe" when she meant "telephone" for one example) and other times she started a sentences and stopped after four or five words. What little she said she repeated over and over again over many minutes interspersed with baby talk. When the kids were little she never did that much baby talk so hearing so much today was very disconcerting.
Her blood work is still coming back with no signs of infection though that does not mean much as that has happened before when she had a raging infection. The most recent episode of unexplained fevers seems to have inexplicably stopped again. They have added a different antibiotic and taken her off the IV versions of various antibiotics. They have also changed her BP med again to deal with an ongoing issue of her blood pressure soaring.
Scott and I plan on staying home Sunday to give me a day of semi rest. Having fallen twice at UTD Friday evening and having stumbled and nearly fallen several times today, it is clear that I need to stay home and take care of myself a bit.
