Night Calls

My mother called for us twice in the night. Once at three and again at five. The first time she'd forgotten what she wanted by the time I got to her, the second time she needed the toilet. I was a little stern on the first occasion, not angry exactly, but stern.  The second time we suggested she get back into bed after returning from the bathroom and she said "I don't go to bed at five o'clock" and we said "Five in the morning" and she burst out laughing. 

This morning we asked the carers to dress her and sit her out in a chair. Perhaps she'll sleep better for having gone through the motions of getting up.
