I’ve been going through the last three days as if it’s pretty much same old, same old, which it largely is, yet there is one small event that happened, is happening?, that I’ve neglected to note. I’m not sure why. Never thought to do it for some reason.
It’s nothing earth shattering, just one more thing in a long list of things that have and will change. I’m now putting mom’s eye drops in every night. See? Nothing major.
The pharmacy is super efficient at getting her eye drop prescription refilled so at one point not long ago we had four boxes of her eye drops stockpiled in the fridge. I had to label them 1, 2, 3, and 4 so she would know in which order to use them according to the time we picked them up. (To use the oldest first.) Suddenly she’s out. Where did those four boxes go?
I think she was putting too much in. She had six or seven months worth of eye drops on hand and suddenly, in a matter of weeks or a couple of months, she’s out. We decided it would be best if I put them in each night. That way she isn’t putting in too much. I doubt there’s harm in it, but there’s no reason to waste them. Besides, the prescription is, one drop per eye each night before bed, not however much she gets in her eye when she squeezes the bottle.
So now, in a way, I’m putting her to bed each night. I knew this was coming but I never expected it to start in the form of me making sure she gets her meds in her and in the right amounts.
Otherwise, like I said, same old, same old. We’re staying home as much as possible and limiting contact with others when we have to go out. Masked up, of course. Only smart people mask up outside their home, yard, or car. (I’ve been pleased to see very, very few people without masks in the last few days. I think people, around here anyway, are beginning to take this pandemic seriously. Honestly, it’s absolutely pathetic that we’ve not got this thing under better control at this point. Wear a mask!)
