OFFICIAL DAD UPDATE:
Dad’s recovery is going very well. He’s had a couple of tough days but has worked so hard at staying strong and following the doctor’s orders. He walks several times daily using a walker or cane, sometimes neither. He sits in a straight chair for meals and occasional email checks. (He loves his laptop…who doesn’t!)
We’re glad he is able to get up and down without any help. Mom and I both have really strong biceps now! Mom’s been helping him with his clothes and waiting on him “hand and foot.” We’ve been mowing, weeding, mulching, gathering produce from the garden and taking care of the gazillions of flowers. Our chores also include feeding 20+ hummingbirds, and the mix of finches, cardinals, doves, bluebirds, orioles,and wrens. Yes, we’re pooped…but extremely grateful that he has come thru this so well considering all he had done.
We’re looking forward to the day he can begin driving and gardening again. He misses his daily drive to the river and to the park to feed his pet squirrels. He even has a pet woodpecker (“Woody”) that swoops down and swipes the squirrels peanuts. He gets a big kick out of watching him. Besides, we miss him taking us all out to LUNCH!
Thanks again for all your kind thoughts and prayers.
Doing what he does best, FISHING!
