Sadly my Daddy is now in a nursing home. He is in a 24 hour care place, semi-private room but no one is in with him yet and I know he won't like it when he gets a room mate. My Mother just can't take care of him by herself, she has to lift him, dress him, help him to the bathroom, and she is too weak herself to lift him. The place he is at is right in the same complex as their apartment is, it's a multi level facility with independent living apartments where they live now, Long term care facilities, and many other services so my mother can go over and sit with him whenever she wants to and my Dad can go out for day outings or overnight trips. I know my Dad really needs to be in the home but it still hurts to know he won't have much life left because they won't be there like my mother was. My mother is already trying to get rid of his things which I don't like, what if he wants to go back to the apartment for the day and there is nothing of his there? It just hurts.
So I still have all my trip plans on hold, I don't want to be off somewhere when I get "the call"
There is still snow in my back yard, mostly where the snow falls off the roof of the garage, back of the house and in the woods where the sun doesn't get to much. I found a patch of ice in the drive way the other day the hard way but everything is ok. It's only in the 40's here so it will take awhile to melt.
That is my life for now, mostly still on hold.
