For the past few months I’ve written about my dad and his potential progress in hopeful terms. I described a best case scenario. It was as much as we could hope for. We were prepared to accept less.
That’s why it’s so cool to say he’s way beyond that now!
He is ninety and getting stronger. He’s walking. He standing.
He found a wonderful woman who spends her days with him. She makes sure he’s getting out. They went to the mall. They went to Costco. She sent me video of my dad Wii bowling today.
Finding her was an incredible gift.
The Internet only goes so far. He needs human contact.
My sister took him to the doctor for a check-up today.
Which doctor? Don’t know. He sees so many. If he was playing specialist BINGO he’d have already won cash!
The question of traveling to SoCal came up. We were all scared the answer would be no. After all, being ninety itself is a health hazard.
His doctor said, “Go.” She said it would be good for him. And so he will. We are very excited.
It’s not like he has any pressing obligations, so sooner rather than later. A little California therapy is a good cure for winter.
