Update on Dad

Well my dad has nine lives like a cat. We thought for sure he had given up and wanted to pass but in the last few days he is feeling better with less pain(Pain meds are working well). He was able to tolerate being transferred by a hoist to a wheelchair today. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers....they seem to be working. The only problem still is his confusion. Still having issues with understanding his complete health status and what is going on around him. He is perfectly happy in the nursing home letting the staff take care of him. They seem to like being around him and making his life comfortable. Very fortunate that we were able to find a place like this. We are still in a holding pattern as to leaving for AZ. I'm waiting on the title to our Mitsubishi Lancer to come after having the title transferred to my name and getting the leasing company off. Once that happens we will be selling the car to a dealership and get the money back in the bank account. So, we hope that happens soon. The title company told me it would take about 7-10 days to get the title back. It's been 4 days now. Having the title sent to my brothers house for quick access when it gets here. We have our basic route mapped out and a good idea on where we plan to stay when we head south. We'll firm that up soon once we take care of business. We're just happy that dad is doing better and we won't have to worry as we travel and spend the winter in AZ. Of course we will be in contact with my brother and will be coming back for the holidays. So we are finally moving forward....sort of. :-)

Retirement is good so far. Like a long vacation that never ends. I like that. Ready to see the country.


  1. Glad your dad is doing better, we'll try and knock on your door in the next day or two if we see the truck there. Looks like fun here in the campground with Oktoberfest going on this weekend.

    1. Thank you...we'll be in and out so if both the truck and car are at our site, we are home. Would enjoy meeting. Interesting Oktoberfest for sure.
