Today was just such a wonderful day, I just had to share!

"Dad" was getting bored, so hubby - wanting to give me a break - took him down to see our oldest daughter, her hubby, and her two boys. We were concerned that it may be too much for "dad", but thought it could be sooo good for him that we wanted to try.

While they were gone, I took a 3 hour nap!! turn Woo Hoo!!! First nap in three weeks!! I also got to do some detoxing for my own body during the quiet time. :-) Ahhh, attending to myself while I still heal from my own health issues. smilewinkgrin

The trip was 2 hours each way, then they stayed for about 2 hours. Our daughter's boys - 3 and almost 1 years old - were ready to play with their Grandpa and Great Grandpa when they got there!! What joy they can bring to "dad" now a days. They also got to see our oldest son for about 1 hour today, then made the trip home again.

"Dad' was definitely tired - word finding issues, a bit confused - but happy (which is priceless at this point). He sat while I finished getting dinner ready, then readied himself for bed afterwards. He was in really good spirits -was a bit feisty even, cracking jokes at hubby expense!- and has plenty of clarity, even if he still had word finding issues and some confusion.

We've had some great conversations with tonight, and he's looking forward to the 20 minute trip to see his sister tomorrow!! Gotta love this man!!! :-)

Nothing like everybody being happy campers!! yeah

Aww that is so awesome to hear! Your FIL is so lucky to have you guys. Sad as it is, many people just throw their parents in home when they develop dementia. So it's refreshing to hear that there are people such as yourself that takes the time to help and care for your loved one :)

Kudos to your hubby!

Thank you Sherry! So far this morning, "Dad" is worn out still, but he had an awesome night! Only got up three times and put himself back to bed each time!! :-)

Hubby and I really feel like all the things in our lives - even my having Lyme disease - has been leading up to this situation. Preparing us for this, and I have to say it's immensely gratifying knowing that whether or not this wonderful man understands or not, we are making a huge difference in his life.
