Thanks for all your notes regarding my father-in-law. Tom decided to fly rather than drive to Florida and left the house before 5am this morning. We are not sure how long he'll be down there, but he's cleared his calendar for 3 weeks. (He bought a one way ticket down there in order to allow for flexibility.)
Tom is very optimistic that his father will make a full recovery, but time will tell. Tomorrow he sees the neurologist.
Tom's parents still live in the same house they have for over 55 years. His father is the primary care-giver for his mother who has dementia and is in a wheelchair. He has help come in several hours a day six days a week. Obviously, he really needs more help now not only for her, but now also for himself.
What a difference a week makes--last week at this time everything was "normal". Life really comes full-circle when we must care for those who at one time cared for us.
Things will be very quiet here....I'm not looking forward to being alone for so long, so if you have time, keep those notes coming.
