It seems we might be entering yet another phase, every few weeks things are changing. Now my OH wants to stay in bed and sleep a lot. He sleeps quite well at night with episodes of sleep apnoea, from about 8.30pm for 12 hours or so with a couple of changes. This last week or so he has not wanted to get up, and even if cajoled into his chair is very disinterested in eating and just wanting to get back to bed. Today I put him back by 11 after he had some breakfast, and later in the morning our carer tried to get him up again to go on a planned trip out. No way. So a quiet morning, she did get him up for lunch and he was OK this afternoon, but back in bed at 5 and still asleep. I will get him up for a meal soon, but then it will be off to bed again. Does it matter? I feel concerned he is not getting any stimulationand will just get weaker but also wonder if it just cruel to be insisting on him being up more.
