With my eyes permitting, I tried to stay awake until 8 p.m.

I watched CNN news and then headed to bed.

With Chi-Chi’s help, she gives me pills, she pulls back the covers and “plops” me into bed.

Hopefully, I will fall asleep soon.

Sometimes, I look at Betty’s picture and speak to her.

No one knows if she’s listening.

So … dear readers … good night.
