My brother and sister and I spent all day yesterday with mum in shifts in an effort to keep her awake as I realise her body clock must be messed up. Luckily it worked, as she slept through the night without getting up, apart from toilet visits.
But now I’m paranoid about her sleeping in the day. This morning we went to the chiropodist but as soon as we got home and she sat down, she began nodding off. I keep waking her up but feel so cruel and she’s getting annoyed with me. Also, I’d like to go out this afternoon but I know if I do she’ll go back to sleep. I can’t face being up in the night again, particularly as I have to work in the morning.
It’s a dilemma and no mistake!
