I might have to get one of these. It's a bed alarm that goes off when the person gets out of bed. Mom always used to make a kind of sing song, laugh/clucking type noise as soon as she is up. Whether just out of bed or out of a chair during the day, if she was up walking she was making this sound. This was a help to me, because it would wake me up at night, and when I was out doing chores using the baby monitor, I could hear this when she got up.
She isn't making this sound any more. She is being very quiet at night, so I don't always hear her right away when she gets up.
We had a very bad night last night. We went to bed around midnight, but Mom got up at 2:30. I got her back to bed, but she was back up 15 minutes later. This time I took her to the bathroom, that took about 1/2 hour or more, then I put her back to bed. Up 15 minutes later again. This time I gave her a banana to eat, some water, and finally some milk. Back to bed, back up 15 minutes later. I think by now it was 5 am or so. I gave up, and did some more weaving on the peg loom while she walked around and did her "paperwork". Around 5:45 I noticed that it seemed like she had slowed down a bit, so I put her back to bed. By now, I was so tense from expecting her to get up again, and having to strain to hear her do so, it was probably 6:30 before I relaxed and fell asleep again. I am dragging today!
I am starting to wonder if she has a UTI. She hasn't been sleeping well/has been more agitated since I was gone those few days a couple of weeks ago. I had blamed it on the spring unsettled weather/pressure changes/wind, but now am starting to wonder.
