After back surgery, congestive heart failure, a major heart attack, three weeks in two hospitals, and six weeks in a physical rehabilitation center, look who is home! Dad came home on Friday, February 17. Although it has taken a couple weeks to acclimate to our new normal, things seem to be settling down.
I am now playing doctor with my Dad three times a day. There is something totally wrong with that sentence. What I mean is I take vitals, administer breathing treatments, and dispense medications. Dad is still making great progress and is now able to walk up and down the stairs alone. God has truly blessed us with answered prayers.
STOP THE PRESSES!
I wrote this post three weeks ago. Before I could publish it, Dad fell and dislocated his elbow. It was a setback for which we weren’t prepared and it knocked the air out of his sails. He, again, had to make adjustments and today he is improving and looking forward to getting his splint off Tuesday and being fitted for a hinged brace.
So, that is what I have been up to…so how ‘bout you? What is keeping you busy?
Greet each day with Gratitude!
