Ambien works for well. William loves to have Ambien at bedtime. I ask him why. He says that this way he doesn't have to worry about falling asleep. It just happens. I actually get 10mg Ambien tablets. I cut them in half and give William 5 mg at bedtime. Sometimes on the weekends when I am home. I tell him to try sleeping without taking a pill. He manages. I think that he is using it just as a safety feature. If I am able to keep him up most of the day then he does not need the pill. I know that he asked for one the other day. But, I was too tired to go and get one for him. I fell asleep. When I woke up....I remembered that I was going to get him a pill.

William is always jealous of the way that I can fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. It is just amazing. But, maybe the job of caretaker has just worn me out. Actually I was like that before the stroke (William'S).

I took Asha's advice and wrote down my questions for the cardiologist ...for Friday's appointment.

I am curious to see what he will say.

It is so strange ...we had labs done today. The labs bill into medicare and I suppose that they are getting paid. Aetna is the primary and medicare the secondary. Who knows??? WE have been doing this for 8 months and I haven't heard from Quest about a bill. WEll, it is strange. Everybody else wants to bill into Aetna first. I will never understand insurance.

I have never taken an Ambien..all I know is that is works well for William.
