Florida once more



My lovely wife and I made the trip in one piece. We rain into amazing storms in CT and NY. Gave up on trying to drive the flooded roads and spent a night in a hotel. The next day we drove around the clock and got to Florida. It was a good decision as we didn't hit more storms until FL. Pretty good.

Dad's been dealing with cancer but then had a seizure and he was in pretty bad shape. Very very confused and didn't know what was going on. Since then he made some big improvements-his mind is back.

My lovely wife and I will be here in FL for the duration. Dad's looking a situation where he'll be moved from the hospital to a hospice situation at his own home.

Thanks for all your prayers and support.

  3. Glad that you are with your Dad and he will be able to get out of the hospital and stay in his own home. Hospice nurses are very special people. He will be in good hands.
    Continuing prayers for all.

    1. Hospice people are special. Mom was in hospice and it beat the heck out of being in a hospital.

  6. Hospice is really great. Had a friend (posted a blog about it) who died peacefully at home under the care of Hospice. Much better than being in a hospital and at a lot less cost.

  8. Six Bears, it is a blessing that you and your lovely bride can be there for your Dad. I couldnt be there for mine and it has left an empty spot in my heart. Handle things as they should be and my prayers are going out to you.
