Some, or most of you are on Facebook, and have seen my post about my loaf of bread, but for those who didn't see, here it is:
I made it last night, using the recipe for the rolls that I did a day or so ago, and it turned out perfect. I will definitely use it from now on. The main thing I was looking for in a loaf, was the texture and this is it! I guess one does have to experiment to find what you are looking for, and bingo!!!
Jim is not bouncing back like he has before. He seems to be headed in the other direction, especially his mind. He worked with his telephone yesterday for quite a few minutes, and finally asked me to fix it because he couldn't change the channels on the TV. :(
Bear with me, please......being a retired RN, I should know how to handle, know what to say and do, with someone with the beginning stages of dementia, and/or the weakness of body, but when it comes to someone close, it is a different story. I try all day long to make sure he is safe, make sure he is eating enough, make sure he has some stimulation for his mind, and all the other little things that are necessary. By the end of the day, he goes to bed and sleeps and I am so exhausted, I can not relax or go to sleep easily. I know time away for me would help, but am afraid to leave Jim alone in the house for any length of time........
Have you been where I am? Give me some suggestions or hints as to what I can do to make it easier for him, and for me. I am still clinging to Isaiah 41:10 and know in my mind and heart that God will see me through, but my human side is just worn out already and we are just in the beginning.
Two of our daughters are on vacation in Florida, and our son, even though next door, has his hands full with his son, working long hours, etc. So..........help!
Guess I should adhere to the picture, huh?
