Update on Dad

Dad got out of the hospital about two weeks ago. He was sent home with a walker (that he said he would not use) and a schedule for when the PT and nurse would visit. When I talked to my mother a few days ago she said he was doing really well.

I was wondering where you had been. What happened to your dad?

I wrote a bit about it here:

Basically he fell or tripped, hit his head and sustained a concussion. He was in the hospital for ten days or so during which time lots of tests were performed on him - physical as well as mental tests. He received a diagnoses of Alcoholic Dementia which doesn't surprise me. He also went through physical and occupational therapy to build up muscle strength and had a speech therapist for expressive and receptive language.

I have been adding to the other journal in my profile - snapshots of my life.
