...where you just don't have your A game? You know, where you're not at your best and feeling your sharpest? Yeah, me too. So maybe it was one of those days for Neil today. Perhaps it had something to do with it being the weekend so he was off his regular schedule. Anyway, perseverations abounded, conversations were short, and so was his memory. I'm sure grateful for visiting friends who took it in stride.
On the other hand, he sure wants to walk. In fact, he wants to so badly that he does. I mean, he tries to stand up out of his chair and start walking when he wants to go somewhere. That would be fine and dandy if he had all his strength and balance. He definitely can walk, but he is very unsteady on his feet and needs someone by his side at all times. Technically we're not supposed to let him walk without a therapist because we haven't been trained to assist him yet, but we are allowed to help him transfer between his chair and the bed, and if the chair happens to be across the room, well, I'm not going to carry him... ;-)
