It's just a pill...

...SERIOUSLY!

O.K., admitedly, Jonathan came home from the hospital with a lot more meds than he went in with. No big deal, I can do meds in my sleep. Most of them have been added to his morning cocktail which I deal with.

He takes one at dinner and one before bed. Yes, that's ONE at dinner and ONE before bed. And the one before bed is the same one he's been taking for at least two years at the exact same time - BEFORE BED. Why then, is it SO difficult for Scott to give him said med before bed? It's not like there is a change here: same med, same time = no problem.

Apparently there is a problem, because even though it's been the same med at the same time for over two years, he still can't remember the name of it. It's gotten to where I need to call home if I am at work to remind him to give Jonathan his medication before bed.

Now, this wouldn't be a big deal if we had added to his med schedule in the evenings, but we haven't. At the risk of repeating myself, it's the SAME MED!!!

Good thing that man of mine is so good looking...I might have to trade him in! *sigh*

I have to remind dh and ds to make sure that ds takes his meds in the morning. I usually have to actually place them in his hand to make sure he takes them. He's 17!

Barb,

So it doesn't get any easier? YIKES! At 17, I think I'd be threatening to staple a post it note to his forehead - LOL! I know that wouldn't be very effective with your DS, but I'd try it on mine - UGH!
