Hmm, looks like I fell asleep writing the last post sorry, have no memory of that lol
i visited dad today, he’s more ‘stiff’ than I ever seen him, but got him out to his fav cafe for lunch and showed off my car which he likes.
Showed the nurses his pressure care cushion, transferred it with dad ‘in front of them’ - asked them to use it when he’s in the lounge room etc (re new pressure sore), think they finally ‘got’ it 😏. Took dad home to the house (driveway) first - brang the dogs out for a pat, which made dad smile
I’m adopting some new terms: the female dog Georgia is dad’s ‘THERAPY DOG’.
And I am his
If they Public Guardian think dad’s better off with someone who can pay full rent (550pw) thus turfing me & dogs out - at least I have a roof with the car but will have to get rid of the male dog. Ever seen that movie “lady in a van” ? that could well be me soon lol
So many ppl think I should forget about dad & ‘get on’ with my life. I simply don’t understand this mentality.
havin a lay down atm re back pain bad today grr! Pushing the wheelchair around shops did it I think.
Birds are lovely atm 🦅

Yes, doing okay @Former-Member..... 💜
We tweak ourselves and our perspectives ongoing in life ..... it’s a natural thing to do, to rework our circumstances and our response to them to a better fit ..... often far easier said than done.
