Hoping for a good weekend

Jul 21, 2016 5:17 PM

I won't be online for the next 4-5 days or more. We are taking our granddaughter to visit her great grandfather & great grandmother for the weekend. As most of you know my dad is 86 & has Alzheimer's. I called the other day to remind him we were coming. When I asked what he was doing he excitedly responded, "Eating cake.!". They were eating watermelon, bless his heart. A stray dog took up at their house last month and he's like a little kid with her, calling her Lady. With my cervical fusion surgery in a few weeks, it's not likely we will be traveling much until the holidays. I want my dad & granddaughter to have as much time together as possible, before he forgets her too, which he already struggles with. We all have to give him our names when we call. I dread the day when our names mean nothing, and I know it's coming. It was that way with his mom 4 years before she passed away. I'm wishing everyone a very good, positive, happy, restful, & hopefully as bearable if not pain free weekend as possible! Hugs love & prayers for all! 🙂💕🙏🌸
