Well, it sounds like my Dad and his new "friend", spent a lot of time together this past weekend. My Sister-in-law called with the "report". Thursday night dinner at a local restaurant. Saturday he called her and the spent the afternoon together, Saturday night date at a local restaurant. Sunday he had her for a family brunch, he even had a bottle of wine chilled. He calls her on the phone, and takes the phone to the garage for privacy. He wore his "good ranger cap". He said she has pretty eyes.
She also has reported, he seems happy and excited. His entire affect has changed. He seems happy about his life again. His bitterness is fading. He enjoyed my neices visit. He was asking questions about dating, where to go, etc.
This makes me smile.
He has been suffering with terrible depression since my Mothers diagnosis, and her slow decline in health. My Father was struggling with some sort of survivor's guilt.
Yeah for you DAD!!! Keep smiling we love to see you happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
