Dad update: Part Three

He is tentatively scheduled to come home on Friday. That's the good news.

The bad is his blood sugar has jacked over 250, his white blood cell count is through the roof, and he still won't listen to anyone.

And he gets to do this all over again on the other knee in 8 weeks. How nice. Just in time for the friggin holidays.

oh your poor dad - going through this all again. After he is recuperated, perhaps in the spring, your mom and him should take a nice relaxing cruise. I think they will both need it.

Merci - many thanks. Now if he will only listen to his doctor.

VG - I told them to go on a cruise. That's too weird. cue eerie background music

So Dad's a stubborn old coot, huh? Reminds me of somebody else - myself. Try this: show him a picture of the little one and tell him that's why he needs to take care of himself. That'd work on me.

B&M - yes, he is as stubborn as a mule. I ain't saying my pop is a jackass (never would). But he is a hard-headed guy. I guess that's where I get my bull-headedness.

I took your advice and gave him a picture of the baby. You're right, it should work.
