Dad in the World
I was thrilled today, to learn that Dad's first official outing to the doctor was a success. I was also happy that he had a visit with his brother. After almost 4 months of being confined to his assisted living apartment, this was a big day.
My uncle texted this photo. Dad's eyes are closed, but I thought he looked pretty snazzy with his quarantine beard and longer hair. He looks like a professor (which he is) or a writer. My cousin and uncle are pushing for a trip to the barber.
I'm like a fretting parent. I'm not sure I'm ready for Dad to get out and be exposed!
But I also feel like Dad should be able to make a decision! He's been cooped up for months. He hasn't been able to decide anything about his life for a long time. If he's feeling like he's ready to mask up for a haircut and his facility okays that, then I'll agree.
But if Dad is enjoying his scholarly appearance and he's content staying away from salons, then I hope he can make that choice.
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
