Sometimes you have to take a step back, before you can step forward. Easier said than done, especially for an independent, duck-tape-fixes-everything kind of guy like my dad. He’ll feel a little better, push himself too hard and have to start all over again. Recovery is a challenging and humbling process.
Today I’m feeling really grateful for his good days, and for quiet dinners together at the picnic tables in the courtyard of his care facility.
Thank you again for your kind comments, prayers and DM’s asking about my dad. We really appreciate all of them.
