Day by day

We are still here... just taking things day by day.

Dad is all moved in. We still have some organizing to do in the new office space, but it's getting better.

Dad had a few good days, but it seems most are bad. He's weak and tired, but doesn't sleep much. Doesn't eat much. Tires easily to do much of anything. Even the blood transfusion he had a week ago had little effect on him. Yesterday he started a new medicine. We are hoping they will find a magic mix of both so he'll feel a little better. It would be a temporary fix, but better than nothing.

Home health has been awesome. Someone comes almost every day - whether is the therapist or the nurse. They are only a phone call away if any issues arise. It's a good support system.

The plan is to transition from home health into hospice..... whenever that may be.

I cancelled our beach vacation. We were supposed to leave tomorrow. Valerie was so sad when I told her we weren't going. The beach will always be there though. Later.

Lots of people have offered to help. I'm glad I have people who care. It's just at this point, I'm not sure what anyone can do. I guess I am "ok." Most days I am so busy/exhausted that I don't have time to think or feel anything.

Sadly, this is how life goes.

Day by day.
