Making Adjustments

 -

For some time, I've been going up the stairs  to my bedroom on all fours. With my right knee bothering me so badly and my left arm being useless, I'm now coming DOWN the stairs on all fours (feet first, of course). I NEED to be sleeping downstairs for my wife's sake as well as my own, but she puts so many stipulations on things that it's not yet worth it. She spent an hour early this morning struggling to get back into bed before finally conquering her pride and ringing for me. Considering that she was unhurt, I felt like her tiredness was deserved.

"Stipulations???" The caregiver's rules are king... What good will you be for anyone if you cartwheel down the stairs?...

I won't go into it all, Pf, but I'll probably get more sleep as it is. If I croak, it's not my problem anymore! - lol

Errrg! You might just have to make a bed down stairs and let her stew on it for her own good. I mean that in the kindest way. You both need to be safe and if you become injured, where will that leave her?

In a nursing home, LL, unfortunately.
