Things were going well – so we thought-
However his temper flared & all was for nought.
He was excused from day stays in Memory Care-
And that was only the very first snare.
Then his meds were changed – that did not sit well-
He had an adverse reaction as time would tell.
We went to ER & that would decide his fate-
To a Behavioral Modification facility they sent my mate.
After 10 days he was released from there-
Home he went with 24/7 care.
24/7 care with a caregiver, 2 daughters and me-
We could not fulfill all the care he should receive.
From me he now resides in Memory Care-
With extra special caregivers who are quite rare.
Every day we see each other- but the days are not the same-
I kept him with me a long as I could – I am to blame.
Some days he knows me & other times not-
Our Lord has given us more time to share & for that we have fought.
