Lady A, when Pete was very ill in his CH I posted that I had a dream where Pete didn't have AD-he had 'locked in syndrome'! He was perfectly aware that 'I' had put him in a CH and could understand everything what was being said-he just couldn't communicate.I dreamed that William came home from the nursing home for the weekend. And he could walk around. And he spent the weekend eating salad sandwiches because he was starving (there's a bit of a cucumber glut!) and could go to the loo by himself. And I was thinking in the dream - "Maybe it's just that they aren't giving him the right food, what he likes, in the nursing home. That's all is wrong. I'll have to tell them to give him salad sandwiches." Took a couple of minutes after I woke up to realise that it had just been a dream. Apart from anything else, William hated salad sandwiches.
Yes, Lyn, I remember you posting that. I suppose it is bound to happen that we dream about them at this time.Lady A, when Pete was very ill in his CH I posted that I had a dream where Pete didn't have AD-he had 'locked in syndrome'!

I think this type of dream is fairly common for Carers; there is so much emotion swirling round at these times it's bound to impact on our sleep/dreams-and yes, it does take a while to realise that it was just a dream not reality.
Wishing you peace and strength

Thinking of you Lady A hope you have a peaceful sleep sending you hugs xxWilliam seemed quite lucid at times today. He can't talk, but certainly seemed very aware of me, and his eyes were clear at times. The suction machine was beside his bed, so they must have been clearing his throat & mouth.
I did stop in to the family gathering at my cousin's house after all, just for half an hour or so. I felt I better get something to eat anyway, and I may as well do it there. Yes, I cried all over people - first one of my cousins and then my brother. But I did eat some sausages and a burger (years and years since I ate a burger!) and then a small piece of pavlova. Feel utterly, utterly sick now! And completely exhausted. So I'm going to have another cup of "Night Time" tea and go to bed early.
