Mom went to visit Dad today. She found him in the lunch room, sitting in his wheel chair, having just finished his lunch. His Angel (Doctor-Doctor) brought Dad a pink snowball and coffee just the way he likes it, with lots of cream and sugar. Mom marveled at the service and secretly craved a bite of the pink snowball...
Mom brought back his pajama top she had cleaned and replaced the buttons. She brought some more Aveeno lotion for Dad, and his Angel put them away for her.
Mom, Doctor-Doctor and Dad chatted awhile, and then it was clear, Dad was getting sleepy. They wheeled him back to his room. Dad asked Mom to shut the drapes. She commented on how pretty the clouds were in the sky and thought he might enjoy looking at them. He told her, "No, it makes it too easy for them to assassinate me."
Dad asked about my second the oldest brother's jewelry store (which he does not have) and Mom stood there puzzled. She did not have a chance to respond, as Dad started in on how dangerous it was outside and she better be careful. She promised she would. Dad told Mom how "hornie" he was, so Mom asked him how his visit was with my sister and brother yesterday.,,
Dad looked tired. Doctor-Doctor came back in and tucked Dad in his bed. She opened the drapes (which Dad usually likes) and Dad brought up the "assassination attempts" again. Doctor-Doctor patted him on the shoulder and told him not to worry, she would not let anyone hurt him. He smiled and told her he loved her.
Mom told Dad how much we all love his Angel and how well she takes care of him.
After Mom kissed him good bye, she turned as she was ready to leave the room, and heard Doctor-Doctor ask Dad to tell Mom he loved her. Dad told Mom he loved her. Mom smiled and waved. Mom thought his Angel might think Mom is jealous, but Mom told us she is so grateful to his Angel, and the rest of the staff, for taking such good care of him. Me too....
