The Latest On Dad
I do hope this article posts as I have been having tremendous difficulties, not helped by no reply to my complaint..but anyway, here goes.
This is the first week back after a two week visit to see Dad and Mum in Blackpool. Overall, things are OK but Dad is finding it increasingly difficult now to wheel his wheelchair. I reckon this is due to the cancer weakening him despite eating 3 meals a day! It is a big wheelchair, however, and one is in order for the time he is back home, which will be just before I next go back a week on Friday, all being well.
It looks like this mobile commode thingy can be taken apart so Dad would be able to sit on the chair with a hole in it and slide it over the toilet in the bathroom, enabling him to have some privacy in there, something that is very important. The bathroom is Dad's domain!
Currently, the weather is good at the moment so Dad can sit outside the ARC with a few of his friends he has made in there, for a nice chat. I have been in the grounds myself and there are trees and a bit of greenery to look at, with benches for visitors, so it's lovely when he can have this element of freedom to move about as he pleases. I only hope this transfers to the time he can come home. I shall keep you all posted.
