changing dynamics

Living with MS can sometimes be more about living and less about MS. Tonight was a night like that.

24/7 care facility era is a major reason. When the hours before and after family time is not exhausted by home caregiving at Patti's level of disability it does change the dynamics of all involved.

Preparation, monitoring, verbal cues and assistance helped keep a public dinner an accident free experience. Dinner out and a movie (“The Incredibles”) even kept Patti out “way past” <grin> her preferred bedtime without even a grumble.
