I ended up not going to CA. I have been checking on Dad almost daily and he is eating much better now that he is not eating the diabetic food...his attitude has improved as well and he is re-joining the activities and back to his joyful self.
I am relieved to hear this. We have such a full travel schedule planned this year...each month from February through July, both of us or myself alone with be traveling to California for various family events...so I will be popping in to see Dad more often.
Between expected deliveries for my daughter and my nephew's wife, baby showers, bridal and bachelor/bachelorette parties, my daughter and niece's weddings, graduations, birthdays, company visiting, and family celebrations, we will be doing good if we are still standing by August!
My left ankle is still mending and the more I can rest it and let it heal the better it will be for me in moving around and doing all the running around we have to do.
Thank you to everyone for all your concern, prayers and positive thoughts for my Dad. I love you all!
