Paintfree weekend (and a little about life with MS)

Yes! For a couple of weeks our nights have been destroyed by the missus restless legs. They won't function during the day, but during the night they jump and shake. Only way to stop them is for her to turn around and lie either on the side or on her back. But since her lower parts doesn't function she need help to turn around and here I come into the picture. When she's on her back it's two rolled pillows under her legs because her heels must be free and on her side it's a bit complicated to get her feet free from the sheet. Three cushions at various places do the job for a while. Laying her on her back takes 5-10 minutes to get right, on the side takes about 15-30 minutes before it is acceptable. This weekend we decided to sleep as much we could and since I usually paint early mornings I skipped that. We were very good! Late sleepers Saturday morning (yes, Valter too) and early to bed Saturday evening. Up late Sunday, but night between Sunday and Monday her legs wanted revenge or something. Disturbed sleep for about 4 hours. And we're back to where we were before this weekend. Terribly tired. Took some pics though, but have to take new pics, only took one good. :-( And, no, I won't show that picture! :-)
