Continuing saga of my elderly parents:
Mom has a broken shoulder (now 8 wks!) and still can't use it at all. Recall that she fell out of the back door going to meeting one Sunday, was pulled to her feet, went on to meeting and sat for 2 hours with her arm dangling uselessly. Hmmm............no one, including my dad, noticed?!?!?
So with my dad's cancer, my 86 year old parents are nearly 'shut-in'. And the friends from the hall have been great about calling, bringing meals, etc. Now they've brought my parents a speaker phone, and they listen to meetings from home. They love it. I mean, they absolutely think it's the greatest thing ever!!!
Now I just have to remember when NOT to go over! I stay all night about every 3rd night to help out, so I'll go late on Tuesday and Thursday and not stay over on Saturday night.... I just don't think I could stand it.
