Writing Prompts

W.O.T.D. 11-14-21 Festivity

A better day with Dad

Dad and myself at the facIlity, watching the Cowboys.

Before the festivity that is family dinner and football, I went up to the facility to visit with Dad a while, and we watched the blowout that the Cowboy game was. I took him some Pure Protein bars and he ate half of one and a few sips of Gatorade 0. Since I knew he’d only eaten about a fourth of his lunch, that made me happy. He looked so much better today than he did on Friday night. I just had to take a selfie, but I couldn’t get him to take the toothpick out of his mouth for the picture, lol, Me and my short arms are not good at selfies anyway.

One they laid him down for a nap, I waited a while and then left him a note and went on home. He catnaps usually, but was sleeping pretty good, so I put his mat down to keep him safe if he happens to try to get up, alerted the nurse I was leaving, and that he also had protein drinks in the fridge if he didn’t eat much for dinner. He had his call light, and his remote next to him on the bed. I always feel bad leaving when he’s asleep, because he wakes up conf sometimes. I hope the note calmed him enough. Kevin was going to go by later, but did not feel well.

coming home I felt positive for the first time in a while, and therefore, I was able to relax and enjoy dinner and have fun with my family. Sean was the only no-show, but he is house hunting, so I understood. It was all football til Dave went to bed, so I got to see the end of the Adele special, and now I’m going to watch CSI Vegas and go to bed. 🤗🥳🥱
