Todays visit was to be more talking with dad, as his topics of calls have been more specifc, but when I got there I saw that I would have my hands full with some manual work. He had somehow stuffed leftover food down the toilet and it had over flooded his room. Quickly I moved what I could and aired out the room, then to get dad out of the room. Luckily I had brought dinner for him today and managed to get him out of there to eat in the ‘visitor room’ and found a nurse to get a hold of housecleaning to do the clean up. After getting back, then it was a round of clean up by me, as someone only just mopped what he/she could see, and didn’t even do a secondary wipedown as far as I could tell, and since dad was also insistant that his bed was facing the ‘wrong’ way, I figured I might as well do everything at once. Furniture rearranged, my dad seems content, hopefully this keeps him happy for a while.
I noticed today that he has more of a stoop when he walks. His pain seems more managable this last week or two, so he’s getting up to walk more, which is excellent. Let’s hope his L2 heals well, so that it doesn’t give him too much troubles, and he can’t be taken off pain killers.
