Today we drive 2 hours to the Bay Area to pick up Dad from the rehab facility where he has lived the past three weeks after first spending a week and a half in the hospital following his emergency surgery for his fall (see Head and Heart at 92 Years Old, as well as the updates since then for more information on his progress). Then it’s another 2+ hour drive back (depending on how bad traffic has gotten).
It will be worth it, though, to get him into his new apartment in the assisted living place near us. Dad is really looking forward to the move and being in his own place once again. Please pray for the drive both ways to go well, and for him to find his new place a comfort.
He still has a lot of therapy (physical, occupational and speech) ahead of him, too. Please pray for continued progress, and that he will be lined up with good therapists here very soon.
And please continue praying for stamina and peace for me and my wife as we continue coming alongside Dad.
Thank you everyone,
P.S. A few hours after I wrote this yesterday the rehab facility’s doctor called and said Dad’s blood pressure was a bit too low. He adjusted some meds and will examine Dad again this morning to determine if he is medically ready for discharge. We’re driving down to meet with the doctor and be ready to move Dad out anyway in case he’s ready. Please pray he is.
