Help my dad a.k.a Tiger

Update posted by Tertia Janse van Rensburg On Aug 20, 2019

On 18 August, Sunday morning, my mom woke up saying she wants her husband home.

He suffers from horrible heartburn so much so his esophagus burns to the extent a doctor once said a few years ago it was blood red and raw. At the rehab home he suffered badly as they didn't have antacids. While visiting my dad he would tell us he was feeling so bad that he couldn't eat their food or sleep.

He was so happy to be in his own home with his own family. The joy on his face was priceless. Although he is at home and we love having him with us again, it is no walk in the park. We were loaned a wheelchair and was given a quad walking cane by our dear friends. Some of my dad's church friends helped with nappies and some funds.

I am tired tonight and would love to share more about how we had to wash him down, dress him and all the things which take three people to do but tonight I am going to rest.

Much love!

Mom and I went to visit dad at 3pm. He was tired and restless. It was moan day which if you know my dad he never ever does. It was difficult to understand him sometimes but then again who feels like talking if you are tired. We stayed in town because traffic would be so heavy and then visited him from 6:30-8pm.

The evening visit he was better, making us smile with his cute ways, a few teases and jokes. He wants to come home but knows he has to stay for a while.

I am not sure when I will be able to see my dad again as the car I am renting the owner wants back. He has been kind to us as I didn't have to pay to rent the car this week.

My heart goes out to him as his day is so long and our visits make his day much easier. I am praying to God he makes a way for us.

Went to visit my dad last night and he is so determined to walk. He is moving his leg, arm, index finger and thumb. He starts his physiotherapy tomorrow. God bless my dad!
