Last night at 0335 I reached to pat her eyes as I always do, and my nails are so long and sharp I scratched her eyelid and woke her. It stung a lot. So she got up to look. When she came back to bed she made a decision to use a sleep mask until I get my nails done.
She drags her feet because she hates stressing me but she can't allow damage to her eyes.
I had my face all the way up to hers when she came back...face to face...and I tried to gently pat her face, but she woke instantly from the doze she was in, to block it. She called and they had room at 1245! So in half an hour, mom hopes to scoop me up and take me in. It's a 20 min drive on a good day. Gonna be a Burrito.
