Why sleeping so much?...

Patti541March 16, 2005

My uncle sleeps excessively during the day, and (unless he is having a bad night) sleeps mostly through the night. I worry about him sleeping so much...has anyone been given a explaination for this? I know several of you have mentioned this...

He's sleeping a lot because that's what people in his condition do. Don't worry about it. It's when they SELDOM sleep that you need to be concerned. There is no explanation except the brain and body are gradually giving out. Sometimes it's just Nature's way of making the road easier.

Yes, Patti... PB's right. I always considered it a blessing.
