This is my dad. He has kept us on our toes the last few weeks. He has been in the hospital twice this month with complications from his diabetes. The first week, it was hard seeing him there as he looked frail and sick for the first time in his 75 years. His kidneys were failing, and his heart was at risk because of it. He went home after getting everything back in control. Then back in this week, to care for his leg wound.
It is amazing to watch your parents go thru life and be resilient, and mostly healthy, and supportive and proud, and then to see them vulnerable is a whole different experience. This week he had surgery on his leg for wound that was really bad from his lack of circulation. This time when we went to see him, he was up and in really good spirits, and did our hearts good to see that he is on the mend and listening to what the doctors are telling him.
We were able to buy him a new recliner that lifts him out of the chair, and has a vibrating element. He said he is in heaven.
Daddy, we are glad we could contribute to your "heaven" on Earth, cuz we want you here for a long time to come. Love you!
