Dad was in the hallway with his physical therapist when Mom arrived for her visit. The therapist had a belt around Dad's waist to steady Dad as he walked in his walker. Dad was happy and in good spirits. After his therapy, Mom wheeled Dad out front of the facility where all the flowers were bright and colorful. Dad loved it.
Dad told Mom he was in the best facility the Marines have to offer. Mom just smiled and agreed. Dad frequently believes he is in a Veteran's hospital. Mom thought he seemed confused, which is usually not the case when visiting in the morning. He told her he would be keeping the same manager for the Angels baseball team so they could win the pennant next year...
Dad smiled and greeted every female who entered the facility through the front door. He told Mom he had enjoyed a great breakfast, but could not remember what he had. Mom noticed his eye is irritated again, but did not seem to bother him at all. Dad's arthritis seems to be getting more gnarled. His fingers are more twisted and crooked and he has less rotation in his neck, especially turning to his right.
Mom explained to Dad she was getting an estimate on new windows for the house, so she could not stay as long today. Dad was very pleased to hear of the new windows and told her not to be late. She wheeled him back inside and into the music room, kissing him and saying her good byes there.
My sister and I spent the day in our pajamas, playing on our computers. We slept in until 10:30 am. Izzy loves my sister, climbing all over her and giving her kisses. I think she smells the same DNA and we sound so much the same. It is so nice to see her happy with my sister, sitting on her lap, like she does with me.
Tomorrow we plan on seeing some movies and catching a few yard sales...
I am still working on this week's posts... so please stay tuned. I had a lot of pictures on my cell phone and ran into some temporary issues in trying to get them uploaded to my computer. We have been having so much fun and staying up way too late... I will back date the posts to keep the week in order of our adventures.
Today her gift was a pair of Mary Engelbreit tea cup socks. I got myself a matching pair also.
