    Yesterday Cabergoline Day 8

    It's 40 degrees and cold rainy day. I guess she has bounced from well I don't know. I wouldn't think a drop in 5.5 hrs would be considered a sharp one. For the life of me I 'm not hearing alarm for the after +6 time and neither is DH. Volume is up all the way and it's a horrible sound. As it is I hear the AMPS alarm go off but I must fall back asleep because next thing I know it's 30-60 minutes later with my alarm still in hand.

    Services for BIL are at the end of the month and we will be gone for the day. I can work Olive around that. AM shot will be early, half dose or skipped. Have to see what's she doing then.

    She was feeling real good yesterday. Bright, alert looking. Even playing and a short stint of running, both AM and PM.

    Hugs and prayers to everyone.

    Well Paula, I shouldn’t tell you this but this morning at 5 AM it was 68° here and supposed to be a low humidity, beautiful day. Today is the first day used to be October 1… Global warming?!

    Not here either. Even our "fall" days were in the 40s-50s instead of the 60s. We already had our first snowfall/storm, and now most of the snow's melted again. North Dakota weather... If you don't like it, don't worry it'll change soon, haha.

    I wonder if the change in seasons has something to do with it. I usually have little to no problems with my alarms, but I have been really struggling with overnight tests as well. Usually I luck out and Caleb does the overnight checks, but there are times he won't be home until after the +7 and I need to get a +6. I've been failing to get up more often than I've been succeeding. And when I do get up, it's 30 mins to an hour after I meant to get up. So I wonder if something's changed. Maybe my sleep debt is just too large at the moment, haha. Who knows? I hope Olive comes down for you today. So glad to hear she was feeling so good. I hope that continues!

    I never hear the alarm either! Ravan wakes me every 2 -3 hrs a few mins before the alarm goes off. Even when he's in a bounce & I could get some sleep he thinks it's his job to get me UP! :arghh:
    He's very persistent Yowling LOUD & if that doesn't work he pokes me in the face! How long do you think you can go without sleep? [​IMG]

    Tux will pull my hair, but he hasn't been doing it lately. I can and usually do get a nap at 3pm. I set alarm for an hour. Husband turns it off thinking I need the sleep. It's nice of him but Olive misses her +9 snack and dh although trying to help puts to much food down. If I fish it out early for him he adds to it. I can't win with him.

    I like that. Don't think hubby would appreciate it though.

    Probably not. I wouldn't appreciate it either, especially with the colder nights. I sleep with an electric blanket so I REALLY hate getting out of bed now. Bailey likes it too!

    It's tough when DH doesn't get it. I've been through the same thing with my DH. Few years ago, had to start pointing out times where his help wasn't all that helpful. He is doing better, but it was really hard to do.

    Slow steady drops all day. Hope that continues through tomorrow and into the lagoon. She isn't as chipper as she was yesterday, but not so lethargic either.

    I guess sleeping on couch is where I hear alarm. I got up this time. Now I stay up for a bit.
