It is hard to believe it has been 6 months since Dad went to live at The Towers. At that time we did not know whether we even had 2 weeks left with him, let alone 6 months. Alot of change has happened in the past 180+ days. But we find ourselves in a new normal, so to speak.
And there is much that we are thankful for…
We survived the holidays… enough said.
Dad is in a good place… clean, bright, cheery, and close by.
Dad has a good roommate… Father Thompson, a retired priest, rarely gives us any cause to complain and he cares about Dad, even though Dad cannot communicate with him.
Dad has good aides… for the most part. We have been through several aide changes and that causes some insecurities about his care. But overall we are very thankful for the nurses and aides who make sure he is well cared for.
Mom is doing well… she is settled into a routine and spends time every day with Dad, caring for him in her gentle loving way. The staff at The Towers all love her. She takes the opportunities given to her to be a light to them.
Friends and family have taken time to stop by and visit with Dad on a regular basis. Some people have no one visiting them.
God continues to faithfully provide for Mom and Dad.
Dad is calm, peaceful and resting comfortably. He is stable and has no other health issues except for the Parkinsons and dementia.
Thank you so much for your love and support. Your prayers have been what has kept us going these past 6 months. Knowing that we do not walk this alone makes all the difference in the world.
