Default Dad's home

Hello everyone,

Just thought I'd update everyone while I had a chance. I keep switching off between checking e-mails or the forum, but get interrupted every time with attending to one or the other parent.

Dad is home now and doing much better. Trying to teach him a whole new regimine about diet and how to use a walker, etc. He remembers for a about 2 feet and does it his way again. We keep reminding him he's going to end up falling and breaking a hip which is not what he needs right now. But.....

Anyway, I'm surviving and enjoying getting to spend some time with my parents. May not be the quality I would like, but I'm here.

Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes for my parents.

I'll be back full time soon.

I'm glad he's home and safe Patty. Both my parents are close to 80 years old. They're both in very good health so far, but I have many friends who have had to deal with the same situation. Try to find a way to keep your spirits up.

Glad to hear that he's doing well and is back home. Just remember to take care of yourself, as well as your parents during this difficult time.

I'm sorry I don't know what happened to your Dad, but being home with family is the best place to recover. I hope all goes well for you and your Dad.

I have been my Dad's full time carer for some time now, he is 85 with less than 30% heart function, diabetes, and amongst his many other ailments, the worst of all for him is his macular degeneration, which makes him almost blind.

Our Parents look after us for a long time, so as I see it it's only fair that we look after them, I always say it's a labour of love.

All my best wishes, that he learns (to listen) and that the quality time reappears.
