Dad is noticeably worse today. I took the kids over to mom and dad's apartment for dinner. Dad was pretty quiet. Mom said he doesn't really speak unless you ask him a question. It seems like it's increasingly more difficult for dad to speak and formulate a reply.
Before I left I brought Cody over to dad's bed and dad was playing with Cody's feet. I was choking back tears as I wondered if dad was thinking about the fact that he won't get to see those grow to be bigger feet. This process is so very, very hard.
Many of you who live locally here to dad and mom keep asking if there's anything you can do to help. We could use some people who we could put on a schedule to stay with dad on a Sunday morning to make sure mom could make it to church. Hopefully we could have four or five people to put on a rotation so they wouldn't need to miss church too much themselves. Just give mom a call or send her an email to let her know you'd be available and we'll get a schedule worked up.
A huge positive thing about going through something so difficult as this is that I get to see just how many wonderful friends my parents have who love them so deeply.
