So my parents are MUCH older than the parents of most people my age. I'm an only child, so when things happen with them, it's all on me. (Not complaining, just saying how things are.) So the last couple months, my dad started falling more lately. My mom took him to the ER to have tests done. He's good. Things just happen due to old age. He stayed in the hospital for a couple nights, then to a care facility for a couple weeks where he worked with a physical therapist. He's been back home for about 2 wks now. My parents live in a 2-story house & my dad's been staying/sleeping downstairs. My mom's getting used to the new routine of caring for him. I still come on some Sundays to watch him while my mom goes to church. He's got Alzheimer's too, but still talks with good sense on many days, so he' not totally out of it. This is a different feeling for me (& I'm sure my mom as well) to see him so fragile.
