At my house we do NOT have enough blankets! Maybe I should rephrase that and say we do have plenty of blankets but we don't have enough if anyone else comes here to sleep. I am THANKFUL for the blankets I have, however. You see Richard is always cold. His circulation is just not up to par. That part of his body doesn't work right anymore. It could be caused from a variety of health problems that he has. He has chronic anemia, hypothyroidism and has lot quite a bit of weight in the past two years. All of this makes him cold.....I am not just talking about your normal feeling cold. He is ice cold. His nail beds turn blue. His lips turn blue. He shivers.
Bath times are a nightmare to him. He likes the warm water of the shower but getting him out and dressed takes a team effort. This past shower day Harley warmed a small blanket in the dryer while I was drying him with the towel. All the while Justin held the blow dryer on warm and blew it over him. Harley came running with the blanket and we wrapped him up until the shivering stopped. And then I flew into action and dressed him as fast as I could. Then we take him to his chair and start with the blankets. On a normal day 5 blankets are enough. There have been occasions where he requires a couple more.
So if you are coming to my house for a visit bring your blanket. There are no extras here. And if you want to stop and say "hi" to Richard just look for the pile of blankets.
