This week has seen Andy periodically upset and anxious. Bouts of frustration and angst seem to hit him out of the blue. To see him upset and largely being unable to do much to change this is difficult to watch. God alone knows what it is like for him.
The calmer periods come as a huge relief to us all. Old favourites like runs in the car help but this cannot go on all night. We already cover the equivalent miles of a daily commute to Glasgow! Bailey has had a distracting and calming affect and also copes well for a pup to the disruption and noise. Tonight Helen helped calm Andy as they played in the garden. The sun came out and Helen and Andy laughed, happy for a while. It does my heart good.
