Randomness upon first waking up

This morning I am bemoaning two things. Soreness in every muscle, tendon, joint between my knees & waist and the fact that I have had so much salt in the last two days that last night I must have gotten up at least four times to go to the bathroom. I feel much less swollen now but tired!

I started thinking this morning about people who are older or in very bad physical condition. I wonder if there comes a point when they stop eating or drinking just so they do not have to stand up as much?

That would be a terrible reason for a sudden decline but if you do not get enough water or enough calories your health will decline so fast. I bet this happens. That makes me sad.

This is the whole reason I wanted a bluetooth keyboard, so when I have these weird random thoughts I can put them down. πŸ™‚

  1. That’s what happened ultimately with W’s dad. His dehydration was directly related to the series of strokes he suffered prior to eventually passing away. That was a long slow slide. He was a very manly man and didn’t want to wear depends, but didn’t want to have any accidents, so stopped drinking water, stopped eating, and eventually just became really ill in a cycle of strokes and UTI’s. He was only 88, and probably still could have kept going pretty strong for awhile. He was looking for wife #3 til the end. I have a bluetooth keyboard for our smart tv, that we’ve only rarely used – I bet it would work with my kindle! never thought of that!

    1. That is sad. About W’s dad, not about you being anonymous. A couple of times in my life I have gotten very sick and stopped caring. I did not eat or drink, I just slept. I think I can understand how that can become extreme.

Don’t leave without saying something!
