Quick Dad Update

Click now for JiffNotes

Thank you all so much for the prayers and good thoughts for my dad. Last night when I went to see him, he was awake and sounding one third like his old self, one third disoriented and one third forgetful. Poor guy; he kept apologizing for causing everyone trouble. I told him I was just so happy to see him awake, there could not possibly be anything to forgive. Today the goal is to get him up and walking!

Oh my, I'm glad he's awake and doing better. The beginning of the month we went to see my MIL's husband he had fallen off a ladder and broken his pelvis. We need to keep our Dad's in bubble wrap apparently.

Your description of Sat's sewing class cracked me up. Please post pics of your napkin :). I'm sure it doesn't look like the otter had had to many mojitos ;)
