It has been four months since my dad was placed in a nursing home..and yesterday i took him to spend the day at home with me. It was sheer bliss to see the look of comfort on his face. Now don’t get me wrong, the nursing home is pretty nice and he never looks uncomfortable in anyway whenever i pop in to see him (unannounced or not), but there was just a look of knowing that he was “home”. He watched the cricket on TV (usually he doesn’t pay much attention to whats on TV) and he enjoyed my great cooking (big grin)…anyway it felt good to have him at home on the day, i guess i dont have to wait until Fathers Day or birthday or any such occassion to just take him by. However, it was not as easy as it sounds as he can’t move around and his left side is bascially dead, so unless i have at least 2 males, and strong back males too, it would be hard to move him about, becasue even though there is a wheel chair, lifting him in and out of it is a challenge, even getting him to sit up in the chair at home was a hard task…..BUT at the end of all that it was a good day…..

Hope all the daddies and a great daddies day
