Plans change constantly and thankfully, we are “Semper Gumby” (Always Flexible).
Since my dad’s strange infection in his elbow that landed him in the hospital, we’ve been watching over him since he’s returned home. The piles of pills he now has to take is staggering. Thankfully, the meds have been helping him return back to full health, albeit slowly.
We originally had plans to take the Journey up to Rhode Island to visit Marti’s sister Gail for the month of August and have my dad (and his little dog Mindy) drive up in his convertible and join us for a week while touring Boston and Plymouth MA, as well as some beach time at Pt. Judith, RI.
Unfortunately, the healing process has been wearing on him quite a bit and causing some heavy fatigue. So we’ve changed plans.
He’s been looking forward to visiting Rhode Island for a while now and we don’t want to disappoint him, so we’re leaving the Journey in his driveway (Sniff) and driving up together in our car.
The trick will be doing the touristy things so dad can have some fun and yet being careful to balance things so we don’t tire him out too much and interfere with his healing process. We are shortening the length of our stay, too.
On the bright side, he’ll need lots of time to just relax and nap. That will give me a great excuse to just relax and nap, too.
Like father, like son… :cD
