I'm having a hard time writing complete and coherent sentences so I thought I'd describe the last few weeks with mere words: Nightmare, hospitals, strokes, Medicare, Supplements, therapy, more therapy, assisted living, wheelchairs, Alzheimer's, life, home, memories, happy, sad, tears, more tears, vulnerable, fragile, love, frustration, family. I've seen the best and worst of just about everything since Dad's stroke on December 27.
My parents are stable at the moment and for that I am grateful. My family has experienced every major life decision and raw emotion these law few weeks. You reach a point when you become the parent and your parents become the kids and that is humbling and scary. You think you are prepared for the curve balls but when all is said and done you are not. The important thing is that everyone is together and we are cherishing each moment. My dad continues to be the greatest guy I've ever known. Through it all, despite all the challenges, he remains strong and is even starting to laugh a little again. He is an inspiration to me.
Once again, thanks to all of you who have reached out to me since Dad's stroke. I appreciate it.
