I continued giving him the meds four times each day. Each day he continued to feel worse than the day before but again both my husband and I assumed that his increased illness was due to his medical condition and it never occurred to either of us that was not the case.
After two weeks of this constant medication taking we had some company one night. My husband went to bed soon after feeling terrible. He asked for pain meds which I promptly supplied and it was not until the next morning when I went to get his morning meds from the nifty medicine case that I realized his previous evening's meds were still there - I had forgotten to give them to him!!! Now being the diligent caregiver that I usually am, I could not believe I had messed up and instantly went on a guilt trip.
