Been very busy here lately, but, have Dad on a bit of a schedule. He is doing remarkably well, good days and bad days. He gets up, dresses, makes his bed, feeds the three cats, takes a shower and gets his own meals. We have gone to the grocery store that he loves, and, he rides around on one of the electric scooters. I do his laundry, clean the litter boxes, feed the birds, clean his house, burn the trash and make sure there is enough cat food on hand in case of a blizzard.
The physical therapy guy is done after a month. We all decided that since the main problem is his knees, which are bone on bone, anymore PT would not be advantageous. However, he will continue to do the exercises to keep his legs as strong as possible. The nurse will visit one last time next Wednesday, then she'll be done. They've been very helpful in the transition from the home to his home.
He'll be going back to the doctors in three weeks for a shot in the worse knee. He has had these before and they've helped for a short time. Any relief is welcomed.
Need to order more propane. That's gonna hurt. A tank has usually lasted all winter, but, it's never been this cold before, and, since I haven't been home much the past couple of months, the wood stoves weren't being used, hence, using more propane. It is what it is.
Glad you Dad is doing better than expected. Sometimes it is hard to keep us old guys down. Up to 70 here today but there is a cold front coming in sometime tomorrow.
Stay the course, sweet lady. Good to hear from you.
