“Dad's recovery”


Description from J Yee smart chick: My mom called, and youngest brother e-mailed about my dad: he is in the hospital this week in Honolulu, recuperating: he had a mild stroke, very high blood pressure and anemia, and is doing better, he will be there probably thru tomorrow.
I'm leaving tomorrow morning to go there, so will be visiting dad tomorrow after I get home to my mom and sister.

My siblings and I know that mom and dad need some more regular home care assistance than what they have been getting, so not sure how we can arrange, as three of us live out of state, only two of us in Honolulu.

Saying prayers for dad's continued recovery, he isn't walking well right now, will probably need a walker to help get around in future. Mom also has her challenges as she can't get around physically due to severe arthritis in her feet.
Wishing both mom and dad well for their future.

    A beautiful pick for your Dad! I hope all goes well for him and that your family can find some suitable help for your Mom and Dad. It’s so very hard when we realize that our parents have gotten to the age where they need that extra help…it’s such a difficult decision to make…should they go into a home or will Home Care be enough, etc.
    I wish you and your family the very best and my thoughts go out to you, Ivy.
