Hope he has a full recovery, glad you’re close by to help out
I agree about your 2020 statement hope your Pop gets well soon as a guy whos parents are gone Enjoy them while they are here!My 84 yr old father took a bad fall last night when he and mom were leaving a friends house after a nice dinner and chat.
When leaving he missed the last step and went over, breaking his hip along with some other contusions and scrapes. Mom called when she was on the way to the hospital, I met her over there.
They won't let anyone in the hospital aside the patient, so I found mom waiting outside with the couple they had dinner with. She was shaking. I managed to get her to calm down and we waited at my place (5 minutes from the hospital) until we got an update from the nurses. No sense in sitting in the hospital parking lot when I live close by. 2 hours later after X-rays the nurse called to say he broke his hip and they stitched up his lip and arms. She also said hip surgery would likely be today, though they had to figure out how to work him into the schedule. He scraped himself pretty good as well and has stitches on his arms and lip.
Dad's been in and out of the hospital for the past few years, colon cancer, gall bladder, 2 other falls, probably something else I've since blocked out. We're regulars over there at this point.
So today he most likely has surgery but nobody knows exactly when just yet, and mom isn't allowed in. She's always been able to be with him so this is going to be rough.
Fuck you 2020.
