Visiting My Dad

The day after the Ormond Beach shower I rode with Allison to Atlanta to catch my flight to Tennessee to see my dad.  How do Allison and I manage to dress alike almost every time we're together?



By the time I arrived in Memphis, I wasn't feeling too well.  My sister, Norma, was kind enough to bring me a mask for our 2 hour ride.



I ended up being in bed for the next two days at my dad's house so I wouldn't infect anyone else.  If I hadn't felt so bad, it would've been really strange being at his house all alone.  My dad has been in a nursing home receiving rehab since the middle of January after being hospitalized.  This was my first visit to see him.

I didn't take any pictures of my dad at the nursing home.  Thankfully, he felt well enough to go to my brother's house two days in a row and ate more food than we had seen him eat in a very long time.  He seemed to especially enjoy their dog, Barkley.



And he even felt like going for a walk outside the next day.




  Here's a little video of us playing Yahtzee with Dad.

It was great seeing my dad and such fun being with my siblings.  

I found this picture of him while I was at his house; not sure what year it was taken, but isn't he handsome?  Hope you continue to gain your strength back, Dad!

  1. It's good to see those
    vintage photos of our
    parents and remind us
    that that's who they still
    are, on the inside. What
    a sweet visit and one you
    will surely cherish!
