Try to make me go to rehab, I say no, no, no -Amy Winehouse

Sorry I missed my post yesterday, my dad finally made it to the rehab center yesterday afternoon and I wanted to be there to help him get settled in.  He is so much happier there than he was at the hospital, I could see it in his countenance.  Now, for some intense physical therapy to get him strong enough to move back home!!

I just want to say that through my dad's illness, it has been a blessing to know that Heavenly Father's hand is in all things.  When I thought it would be hard to have my parents have to move out of their rental and into my grandmother's home temporarily, it has turned into a great blessing.  When dad got sick, less than a month later and had to be in the hospital for two weeks, it is a blessing to know that when they go home, my Grams is there to take care of both of them...my mom when she goes back to work and my dad while he continues to recover.  I know there is more to this story, but that is it for today since I am posting on Tuesday what should have been done on Monday.


  1. I think we're in a time warp because the date at the top of your post does say Monday, does it not?

    Glad your dad is out of the hospital!!

  2. Stress is still stress even if you can see that God is helping. Glad your dad is doing better.

  3. It's tough working with older parents. My dad has now developed a baker's cyst and apparently the solution is a knee replacement which he is reluctant to do. He's a good guy...I hope he makes the best decision. Either way it'll be a rough go of it for a while.

  4. Valerie - Post Options - I changed the date to reflect as if I did it on the right day. Don't tell anyone.

  5. Very glad to hear that your Dad is doing better and that things are working out.

  6. Been there, done that with parents going from hospital to rehab. I hope he does well and gets to go home soon. Thanks for sharing.
