Last night was a peaceful night. Cheryl laid down in the big new bed at 10:30 or so. I finished up a couple things and joined her at a quarter ’til 11. It was a restful night. I awakened to go to the toilet at 6:30 am and so did she. Cheryl laid down again but I got up.
At about eight I went to check on her. She was awake laying in bed. The creaky door had startled her. I apologized for wakening her from her dreamy state. As I closed the door to return to the living room this conversation ensued;
Cheryl – Who am I?
Me – You are Cheryl.
Cheryl – And who are you?
Me – I am Paul. We’ve been married for about 50 years.
Cheryl – Well, happy anniversary!
I do not know what to make of this conversation. As I left the room she added, I love you.
I can understand that in the early morning hours she is a little more confused than normal. She is still tired. I do not know how well she slept. I can report that the couple of times I got up overnight she was in the same position. She moves little when she sleeps during the night. At about 5 am she was having a conversation with someone in her sleep but she often has these conversations. I do not always hear them.
We will see what the day brings. So far, my youngest son has invited us to dinner on Father’s Day which is Sunday.
