It has been an emotional ride. One thing I learned is that you can never get used to having a sick parent. It is a very difficult thing to go through. I of course am being selfish as what my dad went through does not even compare to what I went through. It was great to celebrate his birthday today and have the worst behind us. No longer seeing that white bracelet on his wrist is fantastic. It is good to have my business consultant back. Now I will continue to nag him to eat.
