Busted Out

We managed to get my grandfather out of Cascade Vista and up to Keith's place on Saturday. It might be a stretch to say that he's thriving there, but he seems to be doing well.

As you can imagine, a 95-year-old man with a broken ankle and a broken hip takes a fair amount of looking after. My Dad came up for an extended visit, and has been taking charge of his care for the last several days. He's heading back home today, but my cousin Amber will be up tomorrow.

Among other things, just keeping track of his appointments and schedule is a fair bit of work. He's got a doctor's visit tomorrow to remove the staples from his hip surgery, followed by a visit with an RN to check his Coumadin levels, and then several hours of physical and occupational therapy. He's a busy guy.
