Another Update

Dad is at home resting and working around the house. From the last few weeks I have been busy with family business. Today I got some me time and took it easy on my day off. Getting back to a more normal schedule for me. I did find out that part of my FMLA thru Metlife was approved and the other part needed some missing info to be completed.

Dad is doing good on his rehab. With the holiday, there was a day of no rehab, but with my work. It game me some additional time off with out using any more FML. I go thru Metlife for FML, it took a while to get the paperwork, get it to the doctor to fill it out and get it faxed into Metlife. I should know if they are approved by this Wednesday.

Good News.

Up thru Tuesday the 6th, my dad was not speaking. Just head nods. Today me and my mom came into the room. I said "Hi" and I got a "Hi" back from my dad. He has been speaking for most of the day and looks like he does not have any long term problems. He is progressing nicely.

The Sleep.

Today after work, a friend from dad's work, drove us (me and mom) to a vet. Once there, the family dog of 16 years was put to sleep. Due to age, being blind, deaf, not eating (even when given food) and not being able to walk, she was put to sleep in my mother's arms. It was a hard thing to do.

Here is a picture younger older days (I think it was a few years ago).

A bad Friday.

This is in basic terms to keep it simple. This last Friday, my dad had a fall off a ladders and hurt his head. Went into the hospital and had surgery. It went good and is recovering with some therapy this next week. To top it off, the family dog of 16 years is not doing good at all and is going to put to sleep soon.
