My dad is 100 years old today. [View all]
Not sure if this is appropriate for this forum, this is a cross post from the Lounge & I wanted to share.
We had a nice celebration & he got to see his 1 remaining brother (out of 6 boys), which only happens every 1-2 years. This will probably be the last time they're together.
He's still living with my sister but send good thoughts because the last few months he's gone downhill rapidly & he needs more intensive care than we can provide so we're talking to a hospice facility that we know is good, they have cared for other relatives & they were wonderful.
Today I don't want to focus on the negative, I want to celebrate the fact that my dad lived a long healthy life of 100 years. No heart attacks, no cancer, no other physical ailments, & even today at 100 the only pills he takes are vitamins, Tylenol, & a baby aspirin. I truly think scientists should be studying him, he's an unnatural phenomenon.
Happy 100th Birthday Dad, you did good. You did damn good.
