|Halloween Eve Dinner|
Over the last little while Dad has been loosing functioning- especially with coordination, strength and balance. He has fallen just about every day, multiple times a day. We've had some near misses between Dad's head and the corners of furniture, which keeps us all on constant watch of Dad's movements. Dad's a big, tall, solid guy and it takes a lot of effort to get him back to his feet. The right side of Dad's body has little strength which complicates the whole getting up off the floor process. It is very scary to me when he falls, and heartbreaking to struggle with him to get him back up.Starting Friday Dad gets to go every two weeks for infusions again. I guess it's a good thing that Mom and Dad moved to an apartment just down the road from the Cancer Center last week. Dad will also continue on the 5 day a month chemo treatment. Now that Dad has stopped working (that happened officially a few weeks ago) he's eligible for home health care. We are looking forward to some added aid and therapy for Dad.
We are giving our all to fight for life and to improve quality of life for Dad. We thank you for all the help and support you each have given in the way that is possible for you. We truly appreciate it and ask for continued prayers, well wishes, and good thoughts sent Dad's way. We could all use them!
