Sheri is trying to remember that Bob is going continue decline, regardless of where he is. "Al" is obsessively picking at his skin causing much damage. The nurse called yesterday for permission to purchase Gerri sleeves (that insurance won't cover) to see if that will help. Sheri's frustration is that his hands need to be kept busy all the time. She knows it is unrealistic to think they can do for him what She was doing for him... but none the less as a problem solver it feels like failure.
Sheri promised to be honest... so there you have it.
