good news, and babbling

As many of you know from reading this or who know me in person, My Stepfather has been very ill for quite some time, and has given us quite a scare on numerous occasions.

Stepdad has his leg amputated last year and has not been keeping up with his exercises, nor come to terms with the depression that followed.  (It amazes me that they didn’t offer him some help, therapy, whatever.) So he has not been able to get around like he should be, especially a year later.

He finally agreed that, yes he needed help, and as of yesterday, he was checked out of the hospital and into a 6 week in house program for amputees, to rehabilitate and come to terms.

Yes, his condition is terminal, but at least now he’ll be enabled to enjoy his time, and retain some independence and dignity.

I am really proud of him that he has finally asked for help.  I can’t wait to go see him.
