Greetings from Arkansas! I can't express how much it means to me to be able to spend time with Dad right now. We had a great visit last night and I think he enjoyed his footy massage. I thought Dad looked fantastic all dressed up too. It's extremely hard to see your father this way and it breaks my heart that he has to deal with all this. I am so grateful to Steven and Melissa who have really made a difference in Dad's life. The facility is beautiful and when I asked Dad if he was happy here he nodded his head yes. He has an extremely difficult time talking and gets frustrated easily. I think the best thing I can do during my visit is to love on him and tell him how much he means to me.
We are planning an "Italian" night tonight with music, pasta, and maybe a few laughs. I hope it gives Dad a few moments of happiness.
