Talked to my dad tonight. He's doing a bit better. They have him doing some gentle exercises to rehab the shoulder, but he's still in some pain, and his right arm is useless, which is killing him. As he says, all he does at work anymore is talk on the phone and write, and now he can't write. OTOH, he's stopped wearing the sling, so there is progress. Or orneriness. Meanwhile, the lawn needs for mowing. Brother #2 lives closest, and would normally step in and help, but he's the one who crushed his foot in a motorcycle accident a month ago, and is looking at more surgery, and a six month rehab. When it rains, it pours. Fortunately, brother #1 is currently healthy (raps hand on wooden desk), and has offered to help. I'll probably go down for a visit in a couple weeks. More on that in a bit.

It was a pleasant weekend. Collapse )
