Small Town Snapshot Sunday #13

Wendy at On the Front Porch hosts Small Town Snapshot Sunday. Check out the other participating bloggers on Wendy's blog, then join us and post one of your own!

I'm having difficulty putting together a STSS for this last Sunday. Last Tuesday my dad was taken by ambulance to the hospital. He has had health problems for several years now. He's been in and out of the hospital, but this time was different. I called the kids and they visited him on Wednesday. On Sunday my dh and I, my daughter and her family and my son and his family loaded up in our vehicles and drove to the big city from our small town. Dad looked pretty good really. He was sitting up eating lunch when we arrived.
He talked a bit with the great grandkids, but his hearing isn't to great anymore and it makes it difficult to carry on a conversation.
So he watched cartoons with them.
Tomorrow mom will be calling hospice to find out what they can do to help if dad is released to go home. Please have a look as some of the previous post I've done about my dad, my hero.

I hope your dad is feeling better soon. I'm sure it helps that he has a loving family to visit and care for him.

Great he was feeling good when you visited, cool he watches cartoons with the great grandkids.

Linda - Hopefully he can go home with hospice care on Friday.

Bob - Dad has been fairly comfortable all during this current hospital stay. Dad likes cartoons, but her prefers the older ones. :)
