Thanks so much for all of your prayers and kind thoughts. Today was difficult. We also found out that at this point there is nothing we can do. We have to see an attorney. We have to get conservatorship. We looked at several assisted living situations. We visited my dad and listened to his wild stories. We made him mad by asking him not to drive his scooter on the highway. It was a difficult day. But God is good. We have peace (or at least a degree of it.) We got a lot of answers even though we can't take any action yet. We had a good day with Dad. We were both there to support each other. We shared tears. So it was not a horrible day. There are still more difficult days to come. But God will be there with us, guiding us and directing us. We know we are doing the right thing and we are thankful that we have each other to get us through this. Thank you so much for your prayers and support. It really means a lot to me.

It is a difficult time when you have to take care of a parent particularly when they are not completely thinking straight. I (and not doubt a lot of others too) have been through this (and continue to go through this). So thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Nancy, you have my thoughts and prayers, too. I'm so glad that you and your brother had a good day with your Dad. There will be tough days ahead, but there will be good ones, too. He's blessed to have the two of you.

So glad you got some things settled and have the peace you feel.
I know how difficult this is for your family and you, but God is in control and as you say, is guiding you in the direction He has planned for your dad at this time in his life.
My prayers are with you as you go thru this process.

Yes, Nancy, do hang in there. My thoughts are with you, especially knowing I could be in a similar place with my dad one of these days....

Having been there, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Remember the special little moments you may have with him now and the ones you had in the past.
