Got here Maxine still sleeping. Sy awake but in bed.|
Exercises with Maxine done. She didnt mind or complain.
Sponge bath done. Maxine had small movement. I turned
her on side to wash her bum real good. She did a XL movement.
I did give her magnesium pill last night. Glad I got the the bulk
of it cant imagine she could have much more. Cream applied.
I put lotion on Maxine's legs today. Then did bathroom routine. She did great.
She asked as clear as could be if I had got here early. I told her nope.
I combed her hair. Put it up in a bun. She was glowing that I had to take a picture.
She even smiled for it. Sy came in shortly after and he too said she looked great.
He couldnt get over how good she looked. It was sweet. Now that this is routine
all the pampering will continue as before. The attention to detail. It really is important
as you can see her smile more often. And its helps her come back to us. Thanks Patty
I did disconnect myself a bit as it all seemed so sudden. To take it all in was difficult.
But thanks to Patty and Jules and Aud yesterday. I feel so much better.
I really never had a problem with Sy feeding Maxine. But of coarse since
it was talked about it yesterday, he is obsessing over it now.
Today I saw him trying to see if she would eat more. I didnt say anything I watched.
I didnt want him upset or mad. After I came in I asked Maxine if she was done. She still
had 1/4 of her cereal left. Maxine told him no more. She had taken a few bites before she said no.
I waited then talked to him after. I told him that if he really wanted to help Maxine encourage
her to do it herself. The longer she could do it the better off she would be. I told him eating is no
different then walking. I said we do it for her and she will decline faster. Give her a chance, let her
know that if she wants food,all she has to do is raise the spoon to her
mouth. He said okay and that he would have her to do it herself.
Maxine was talking very well today. Defnitlely spoke her mind today. She clearly said she was done
with cereal and did not want coffee.
Got to give Sy his boost. Adjust Maxine and put away laundry.
Have a great day!
