Wednesday, January 04, 2012      6 comments

I've learned.... That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person. (Ah, Dad, now I wish I had paid even more attention to what you were trying to tell me) I've learned.... That when you're in love, it shows. ... Read more

Starting Over Is Gonna Be Hard
Monday, January 02, 2012      9 comments

2012 is starting a new whole new chapter in DH's and my life. For the past 2 and 1/2 years our life has revolved around taking care of my dad and now that is no longer an issue. We still have things to resolve such as getting his home cleaned... Read more

We have arrived safely and Dad got the best trip-he flew from Tampa to St. Louis on Delta Airlines and arrived late Tues eve. I think he got the best of this trip north. We had a long trip up here but thankfully no major hangups with traffic-... Read more
Ready to Leave

Just a quick note to say how much I appreciate all the words of sympathy and you have made me feel so good telling me what a good daughter I was. I have been beating myself up and I guess that is just natural but I know deep in my heart that I ... Read more
Where is Sleep
Tuesday, December 27, 2011      10 comments

All I wanted was some rest and now that I can have it, I can't sleep. DH and I are both wide awake-I guess in a sort of shock. We knew this day was coming and I could see dad declining but no matter what, I guess we are never really ready for ... Read more

A brief update-dad's bloodwork showed he had a heart attack sometime yesterday. I guess the chest pain he had after he returned from the cat scan was probably it. I am not happy that the staff didn't call me when they found out and let them kn... Read more

Please keep my dad in your prayers. He isn't doing well at the moment. Now they think he might have broken his hip also. A cat scan was done late this afternoon so guess I will find out tomorrow. I have been running back and forth to the ho... Read more
From Bad to Worse
Friday, December 23, 2011      9 comments

I thought things were going to improve. But like I keep saying, fate had another idea. DH has had one bad day since he started radiation so that is a good thing. He still is bothered by the hot flashes, but they come and go and he is learnin... Read more
