Update on Dad

Went to see the "old folks" today. Mom sprained her ankle yesterday and needed crutches, so I picked them up from the last people we loaned them to and brought them to Mom. Yikes! Her foot/ankle looks terrible! Terribly swollen and purple. I wonder if it might be broken!

Anyway, Dad is doing much better for the last couple of weeks. He's lost more weight and it really helps him be mobile. He has really cut down on his painkillers which is terrific. Today he talked about how much he really liked my mom and really enjoys spending time with her. It was surprising and very sweet to hear it spoken aloud. Wish my brothers and my sister could have heard it.
