Hia Lyn, wanted to come over here to see how things are 'really' going.
sigh. My heart's going out to you and your Dad.
My Dad was always the type that no one Ever saw sad or mad or complain, but when my last step-mom passed, he could barely talk for months. He was almost 85 when she passed.
But then he met a really cute chick - 84 years old and he's a happy man. Very happy.
We never thought it would happen, but this lady is the best lady he's ever had.
He was widowed twice and my mom left him for no good reason, so this is #4 for him.
He's the real faithful type, so it's not like he was a gigallo or something ... ha.
Maybe y'all could go to the Senior Get-to-gethers, and find some Seniors for him to hang out with. My Dad moved to a Seniors Place and first he met another widower man who became a good talking buddy.
Well, I just wanted to come by here and tell you my thoughts have never left you nor my prayers and hoping things will gradually get better for your Dad. There wasn't much we (as my dad's kids) could do for our Dad, except invite him over for meals or take him places of interest, but that was about it.
You take good care of you, please.
Love & Hugs, as always,
