In the past two and a half weeks my dad has been moved to four different hospitals/facilities and we are about to move him again. I have been there to make the decisions with my mom and siblings and paperwork etc. My dad has advanced prostate cancer that has gone to his bones along with pretty severe aortic stenosis. All of this recent 'stuff' resulted from an infection that went undetected and sent him into delirium. We treated the delirium and then he got all messed up from the drugs. Oy vey!!!
The good news is that he is on the mend and a hundred percent better than he was just a week ago. He is one of the kindest, gentlest most wonderful dad's EVER.
|Here he is as a toddler. He grew up during the depression and |
they did not have much money.
|Dad lied about his age and joined the navy when he was 17.|
He then found out he got seasick and held a job on land until the end of the war.
|Here he is with his mom who lived to be 91. This is the dining room of my childhood home.|
Love the bottle of Lancers on the table.
|This is his sister Ruth who was quite an athlete and LOVED basketball.|
Soon after this photo she joined the convent. She taught school and remained in the convent for 25 years.
|Aunt Ruth and my grandpa on the day of her invocation to the convent. She is quite a beauty.|
|Mom and dad newly engaged. She is 19 and he is 24.|
|Dancing with me at my wedding in 1979.|
Last night he said, "Que sera sera" and how he loves that song. So I dedicate this to him and to the hopes and prayers that he is on his way to feeling better.
