So we took FIL to the doctor yesterday. We made him walk in and he looks and walks like an 180 year old man. All hunched over and scuffing his feet. but we got him in to see the doctor. He told the doctor he was not having any pain and the doctor basically told him he needs to start exercising and walking more little by little so that he gets up to walking 3 times per day for 15 minutes. The head nurse and gal that owns the nursing home had asked if she could go with us to the appointment to hear what the doctor said so she heard it too. My DH now has made up a chart for him to check things off each day including the amount of water he drinks. So we will see if he takes it upon himself to improve or not. It really now is up to him.
On another note, is anyone else out there seeing even more pop ups on the sparks web site? Does anyone know how to stop pop ups? It just feels like there are tons now and they actually get in the way of what you are trying to do on sparks. I know sparks has to have advertisers to keep the site free but gee whiz it's annoying.
Happy first day of winter.
Have a good one.
