Patty was here Sy in shower. I came a little early as from posts wasn't sure how|
Maxine was gonna be to get up.
Morning exercises. She did pretty good. Think I know where bruises on legs are coming
from. When we get her up from bed we need to be
careful as her legs when they are moving off bed. They could hit the side of the knee guard.
If she is getting even harder to get out of bed we are so worried about holding her top half up
we tend to forget legs. Maxine's legs bruise so easy that even a little hit will cause bruising.
Today Maxine did great for me. She held on to bar of lift I slowly moved legs down and held other hand till
she got into a sitting position(somewhat her legs are not down all the way). I direct her to hold on to both sides of bars.
I pull the pad forward just a little bit at a time to get her feet down and I keep machine far enough from bed so her legs
wont hit on knee guard. Once her legs are down. I put belt on. Get legs straps on correctly. Then I do any adjusting of the
lift, as well as pushing lift forward so I can get straps attached.
She did not complain of pain the entire time. She woke up with a extra large movement. Then did more in shower.
If she wakes up with a movement it will not be easy to clean up as taking off brief it will get on sling and then you
will have to clean it. Luckily with Patty she did everything for breakfast and dishes and laundry that I wasn't worried
about time. But it would have been a problem if I was alone. It may require more time.
After shower she did start to have pain so Patty gave her a gummy.
Breakfast; cereal and bananas for Maxine.
not sure what Sy had as it took sometime to get to table and he was already
Maxine fed herself today and she did great. She left bowl on table, and ate like we all do cereal. I do
point her more now at table she doesnt really watch to much TV now.
She started to fall asleep at table. I put her in chair. I did rub her new cream on her back.
I have left a note for Dixie to do the same. Twice.
Sy bathroom and at table. Just have to put laundry away then will be leaving.
Tomorrow I will do by myself. I will see how it is and if I am overwhelmed or not.
Hopefully Dixie will have a easy night as I hope she got all her movement out.
HAve a great Saturday!!
