Cleaning For The Cleaners?

Tomorrow the house cleaners are coming thanks to some of my extremely awesome friends!  Today Rose came over and we "pre-cleaned" which really means we got things out of the way so they can actually CLEAN things.  It's going to be so nice!  I wish I had more time to clean things up, like spring cleaning type of cleaning but eventually I will get around to all that.  It's not exactly a priority right now, go figure.

Dave had a pretty good day, just tired a lot but he has been up for the last 4 or 5 hours.  We find that if we give him a little caffeine in the evenings he can stay up for a few hours then sleep really well.  Nights that he doesn't have an awake period before bed he doesn't sleep as well.  We're learning.

Today we got a reclining wheel chair delivered.  We're hoping he'll be able to use it soon but time will tell.  We also found out that since he's in hospice and the hospital social worker didn't set up the equipment with the same company that hospice uses they have to CHANGE OUT THE EQUIPMENT!  Including the bed he's already in.  So like... how is that going to work exactly?  Those companies have to figure it out and we'll just wait to find out.  I'm not going to let them do it before he's ready to be moved safely and I mentioned that to the nurse today and she was in full agreement so I'm glad she's got our back.

Tomorrow the social worker is going to stop in to check on us and see how things are going.  I'm glad we went with hospice because they seem to give us more services than we knew we needed.
