Since 8 days ago my husband is at a short-time-carecenter. He´s coming home on Thursday. This has been a very different week for me and our 17-years old daughter. No-one to take care of, to keep looking for, to explain over and over again to, and now I´m wondering how we will make it when he comes home. He has been much more worse while beeing there, suddenly he doesn´t remember our home, our adresse or where in our town we live, I´m not sure he remember our daughter or me either by the way. But I hope that he will recognize us and our home when he sees us. He is 66 years so he isn´t so old, the other persons at the short-time-carecenter is older.
The decision to take him to the short-time-carecenter was made quickly, beause of me and the teenager feeling really ill, tired and so on. She is an ambitious student in a special mathematic-class and I´m working 4 days every week with long days (6.30 - 18.00) away from home. One day in every week (exept for weekends of course) I´m home to take care of my husband and help him with differrent kind of things, the other days he manage on his own - with the reslut that our home is in a mess. He is in a day-car-center three days a week though.
This week I´ve been home to take care of myself. I really needed this time without him, it´s hard to say but now I realise how much I needed it. Several times he has called me and asked questions about odd things. So now I really don´t know what I will face when I meet him on Thursday.
