10. I am dealing with "this stuff" right now.

Dad, 90, fell and broke his hip on Thanksgiving and is kind of on a downward path
right now. He is in a rehab/assisted living center right now and I don't know if he is
ever gonna go home. @ times he is lucid, at other times he is not all there, and @
sometimes he is angry and wants to go home right now which is impossible because
he just surgery and really can't move or take care of himself.

The best of times now is when I just sit and read in his room and as a retired professor
he smiles and says that I am like him because we both like to read.

I am so glad that your Dad was able to give you such a wonderful gift.
