Heartbreaking Changes


I am ever grateful for the help I can give my parents
though it seems to little...

my father has deteriorated 
drastically over the past few days...

my mom has had the stomach flu during that time
hoping she feels well
enough to visit tomorrow...

for nearly 65 years
they have barely been apart

So sorry to read your Dad is not doing well. Hoping your Mom gets to feeling better soon so she can visit him. It's hard to be away from someone you have been with for that long. You are in my prayers

Oh Kelley,
You and your dear folks will be in my prayers! It is so very hard to see them deteriorate. I know you are doing everything you can. Some things are just out of our hands it seems.
Stay strong!
Big hugs!

This is a really tough part of us getting older. It is so hard to watch as parents age. I hope your mom feels better soon and can visit. I'm sure that will help your dad.
Prayers and hugs :)

What seems like a small help to you, is no doubt an enormous help to them. One of the hardest things to see is the physical decline of our parents. Fr as long and far back as we can remember they were strong and invincible.

Your continuing love and care will help both your Mom and Dad. Hugs!
