Waiting for the good days to come back

Sunday, July 20, 2014

My Dad had a stroke on Thursday, and fell in the bathroom door while having it. Terrible bruising, 2 black eyes. Little movement on his right side, and dragging his right leg.
He is in a rehab place to get physical therapy twice a week. Today, (Saturday), he is able to lift both arms up, and walked in the hallway with a walker. He wanted to go to the bathroom by himself, and fell again. Just a really sore back, which has a terrible rash-they said from not changing positions. Don't think so. The rash was in spots (spotted?) A bed sore is what you get from not moving, and staying in one position. This was a dermatitis rash-allergic to something. We did get him to eat a little (he has lost a lot of weight) so a McDonald's bag seemed to help. His memory is terrible (senile dementia), but except thinking I'm his sister, who is short and round, was a little better today. I asked him why he would think that and he said, "you both are kind of chunky. CHUNKY!!??
I will try to be amused by that, but CHUNKY? What an adjective for me. Guess I better get this hurting body to moving more! See ya, Kathy
