Update on things: We were able to attend my Aunt’s funeral. It was a lovely service with each of her Granddaughters sharing memories. It was hard for them, but they perfectly conveyed my Aunt M’s spirit. 

My Dad continues to improve, but he is still have periods of confusion and crankiness. As he has aged this past year he has gotten very cantankerous. I know that is just part of the aging process, with some suggesting it’s a hormone thing, but it still makes things difficult for those who he is barking at and being demanding of. I know the hip surgery, meds, pain, and limited mobilitiy is also an issue. Pray that he comes to accept the situation while he enters rehab for the foreseeable future. We came back home to attend some events, but I will likely drove back down to take turns staying at the rehab center during the day. I will continue to be slightly MIA while I attend to him, but I do have to post a finish for another TGIFF hosting this Friday. 

Thank you!

We are enjoying vacation, but recent events have caused some worry. My Dad fell Saturday and is having surgery today for a broken hip. I am 14 hours away! My Aunt is now in the Failure to Thrive phase of dementia. We are playing a waiting game. The results of Dad’s surgery will determine when we head home. Diva flies out tonight and Hubster just got here last night. Life is very scary right now. Just praying Diva makes it home safely and that the elders of our family are where they need to be. I am not opening this post up to comments, I need a break from the computer and blogging right now. I thank you for good thoughts, but just need to keep my focus on family. Stay well.
