Nodding Off

Left the house before noon today. Arrived at ICU a bit after 1PM having first stopped by Jamie's apartment to water her plants. It was wonderful to discover Jamie had been off the respirator all night and was still off--just over 24 hours as we arrived. She was still off of it when we left at 9:30 tonight.

Not so wonderful was how agitated she got at various times even to the point of asking us to go or the nurses sending us back to the waiting room for a time. I think some of us spent more time in the waiting room than with Jamie today. I know I did. Mom as well.

Well I'm literally nodding off like the kitty in the video even to the point of my head falling back or to the side or my chin onto my chest. It's been a long day punctuating a long week behind and another ahead of us. I've been clocking in at under six hours of sleep per night for over a week. Guess I better go see how many I can get tonight and I better get my butt out of this recliner before I find myself waking in it when the dawn light hits the big plate glass windows that comprise 80% of the front wall of the house.

Glad to hear about the respirator. Hope everything is better when you go today.
