Been a few days since I posted, but have been reading almost daily. I have come to the conclusion that I have empty nest syndrome. Mom is settled into the NH pretty well, doesn't know she hasn't always been there. The nurses and aids all like her. Her Sundowner's is minimal. She begins seeing the staff psychiatrist this week.
My head knows she is where she needs to be to get the 24 hour care she must have and deserves. My heart? That one is hard. Coming home to an empty house on the evenings DH works is hard, and I haven't even been in her room much. Just to get things she may need. I'm sure I will work through it. I guess DH is more worried about me than I realized. He stopped my best friend as she was leaving work last week and told her he didn't know what to do for me. He is doing all he can, he is very supportive, and a great help. I am so lucky to have him. We spent all of yesterday together. Nothing special, fixed a nice dinner, watched a movie, just being together. We both needed that.
Gotta run pay some bills, you guys all take care, Love Susie
