A request for prayers for my dad Joe.Â* He, as I type this, is undergoing surgery.Â* He is having a complete knee replacement done.Â* He will be in the hospital for two weeks, with about 6-Â*8 weeks of recovery.Â* Prayers are needed for my mom too.Â* She doesn't drive and has been dependent on my dad for getting to work, shopping, appointments, etc.Â*
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
Dad is doing fine. The surgery went well. When my mom and son saw him in the recovery room, he was flirting with all the nurses. Guess he's doing well.
When they told him he would be going up to a regular room, he said to my son "Oh good, new nurses." He has an epidural with heavy duty drugs hooked up to it. He's not in any pain for now. They plan on starting his therapy on Monday. He has already promised us all that he will complete his therapy. He can't wait to get back out on the golf course.
Darlene---my brothers are around but that's not saying much. They do some stuff for my parents but being the only girl most of rests on my shoulders. I don't mind though. I have awesome parents.
prayers on the way for your dad and for you and your family. you might want to check with his health insurance company to see if they would provide transportation to and from his therapy sessions since your mom doesnt drive. some insurance companys offer it as one of the services provided under the benefits plan.
Okay I like your dad he is doing well and hitting on the nurse. That is a man who knows how to make the best of the situation. I will pray for his quick recovery. Glad to here getting to therapy won't be an issue.
