We walked yesterday for the first time in a week. She got very tired very early in the route. She seemed better today, but slower than usual.
She woke at 1:34 a.m., which woke me up, too. She used the bathroom, then went back to bed. A few minutes later she got up and came to my room and asked me if I was okay. I said yes, are you? She said, I guess, and went back to bed. Very strange. She also went back to sleep, which I did not; not for several hours anyway. She did not wake me up. It’s not her fault. But if she does begin night wandering, as so many dementia patients tend to do, it will be the reason I have to quit my job. I need sleep. I can’t be up half the night, then function the next day. I’ve also considered that if her sundowning gets much worse I won’t be able to work.
