After 4+ months - my dad's home!
Thursday, February 04, 2010
My dad went to the emergency room on 9/27 with a severe pain in his abdomen. One emergency surgery and several roller coaster rides later and he has been released from rehab to come home!
He's on a strict diet, insulin for his diabetes, and lots of other rules and regulations but he slept at home last night. I bet he was over the moon! I wish I could have been there to welcome him home but I live too far away. I have plans to go and spend a long weekend with them soon. I'll be glad to see them and help out for a while.
This has been a very scary time for my family and I. I thank all of you for your prayers and ask that you keep us in mind as we learn to live with all the new rules and changes that have taken place and for my father to become accustom to asking for help when he needs it. He has always been very independent and that part will change way more than he's ready to acknowledge.
