Thank you all so very much for your thoughts and prayers and kind words, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all of you, .... Just a quick update, dad came home from the Cleveland clinic, however only for a few days... His legs and feet swelled pretty bad, I first noticed it the 2nd day home, so I stayed over night out of concern...and so mom could get some much needed rest. The next morning they were not normal ... I propped them way up and gladly our visiting nurse was coming for her assessment... While she was there I ran to the grocery store ect,.., came back and mom was teary eyed, he had to go back to the hospital. We called the squad and back he went. He has been there since Thursday and while the swelling has gone down emensely he still is not walking. Just steps with PT, no one can figure out why or what is causing this other than he confided in my husband that he was weakend from being ill and is afraid if he stands / walks he will fall and break his hip. I am my dads biggest cheerleader I encourage him to do his exercises, I am there when PT comes in... Today I took him his own tennis shoes ect ... He was happy. Mom has had to stay home she has a small cold, just worn out, and everything catching up to her but she is ok. I am not happy with my brothers however because it seems they always "have something to do" when I ask them to go to the hospital ... I am exhausted my home is being neglected but this man has always been there for me 45yrs .. I am going to be there for him. Tommorow I am going to a Browns party, my nephews first football game (peewee league) then up to see dad to show him video of Joseph's game. Right now I cannot think about what others do i.e. my brothers I promised myself I would be there for my dad and I am. That includes helping my mom in everyway possible, she has been saying at our house, but she also likes to go home.. She has been very strong thru this whole thing. I also thank god for my caring family especially my hubby... We went through this with his mom, I was there for him and now heis here for me. So thats my update.... Sorry it was so long, but thank you all for listening.... I will post again soon. Bless you all!!!
P.S. thank you Es!!!
