About eleven years ago, my father was involved in a mining accident that claimed the lives of several men. He was lucky to escape the tragedy, but he suffered some fairly serious injuries as a result of being crushed by tons of rock. His left leg had to be amputated at the pelvis, his lower digestive system was destroyed and his hearing was seriously damaged by the explosion.
Both the amputation and the colostomy he was left with present on-going health issues and the hearing loss makes it very difficult for him to communicate with his health care team, so I generally accompany him to his appointments and act as a translator.
What was supposed to be a routine appointment this morning has turned into something considerably more involved, so I will not be able to get to my post until tomorrow.
It’s a gorgeous day here. Hope it’s beautiful where you are, too. See you tomorrow!
Lots of love,
