Next, we decided to take Christy out to the glass walkway and sit in the sun and look out at Pike's peak! Dr. Ripley walked past us drinking diet coke and stopped to explain that it was the goal for pioneers to reach in the 1800's. "Pikes or Bust!" Maybe someone else knows that history. I hope I repeated it right! The sun was pretty bright so Christy borrowed my shades while we sat and looked out the floor to ceiling windows! We have to get her some for the bright shiny days!
After sitting a while on the walkway, Christy asked me, Don and Alan "What are we doing?" Don told her we were just cruising and talking story. Chrsty said she wanted to go to the store! She was asking Donald later to go shopping with us when we left to get food and groceries. Don explained that they were going to stay there and that they couldn't go yet. Christy is so funny.
We were sitting around in the room Christy was eating dinner. She was avoiding the "disgusting beef stew" on her plate. Christy couldn't even swallow it. She spit it out. On the next bite she told Don that he better not put another bite of that beef stew on her plate or she's going to be mad!! We were having a normal conversation laughing our butts off at each other, enjoying one another. Christy commented that this was a "24 hour comedy show"! She's right! We're having so much fun just being with Christy and laughing. The day flew by so fast.
Christy got some sleeping medication tonight again, and slept for a couple hours, then woke up again asking for water. After I repositioned her and adjusted the air conditioning because she was hot, she was telling me "I feel so out of it". She said "I was sgthraushing". After about three or four times of me asking her to say it again, she spelled it out to me... T-H-R-A-S-H-I-N-G. Sorry, Christy. When she is tired it's harder for her to enunciate as well. She said she was tired and I stayed with her and stroked her air with my hand on her chest and she was able to fall back asleep. She's able to tell us now that she's experiencing the restlessness and that she feels out of it tonight! Every day is filled with new blessings! LOVE YOU SO MUCH CHRISTY!
