Well, it's all worked out so well! We got the call this morning that there was a bed for Dad at the nursing home. This was the only day that I didn't have appointments this week, and I knew my sisters were busy today (and each live about 2 hours away).
So... I am honoured to have been able to help my Dad. I arrived at his place at 12:30, had him to the nursing home by 2:30 (after several phone calls and loading the car). Got all the paperwork done, unloaded the car & took things to his room. Made one trip back to the house for a few things he decided he wanted, then back to nursing home. Just as I was about to leave, the labelled clothing arrived back at his room and so I was able to put things away for Dad before I left (at 6:10pm). Both Mom and especially Dad are reeling from all that went on today - I hope they will settle and sleep well tonight.
DH & I went out for a quick supper at our favourite Thai restaurant, then back to the condo. I'm so ready for a hot bath & a good sleep!!
