an “appointment” at West Jeff

Watching Dad and Mom see each other again today was unforgettable. Here are four pics to give you a glimpse of Dad’s special “appointment” away from his hospital over to Mom’s.

He slid into the car from his wheelchair across his sliding board, I stored the chair in the trunk, and we were off. We crossed the river and headed to West Jefferson hospital, stopping briefly to grab Mom some lip balm. Dad waited in the car. Once we arrived, we found a parking place and headed in. Here’s Superman in front of Mom’s hospital.

Here is Dad beside Mom’s bed. They were both smiling. If you know them well, to catch them both smiling in a picture is rare. Not sure why that is. Today, though, they were definitely smiling.

 I threw this one in for fun. It is for those of you who still haven’t seen me with a beard, but have said you want to. Not sure why you want to, but here you go. Weird huh? Mom likes it. So does Jen.

Here’s Dad and me coming back across the river on the Huey P. Long bridge. He was on the phone. I was taking the picture. He was telling all about the special “appointment.” Fun stuff.

 

 

Oh yeah – before we got there, Mom’s physical therapists got her limbs moving and even SAT MOM UP!!! They had to support her body and neck, but what an awesome step in her recovery!!! We’ll see where we go from here. Here’s two pics:
