DAD!

Dad got in and out of a car today on his own for physical therapy.

He told my sister she needed to go get R, my niece. He was right. It was time to go get her.

He put on his own shoes and socks and put on and took off his shirt.

He and I had a long conversation about my cousins, his eldest brother’s kids.

He recognized people from church and spoke to them.

He got bored and asked me to take him to the cafeteria for ice cream. He ate strawberry ice cream all the way back to the room.

He wanted to go to the cafeteria to get mother’s dinner. We did that.

He turned on the television at the right time and surfed the channels to find Wheel of Fortune.

He finished the low-level cognition book the speech therapist has been using with him.
