What was it Karen Carpenter sang?
"Rainy days and Mondays always get me down."
When I called Dad this afternoon, Don Gartner answered and told me Dad was exhausted. Don hit the nail on the head! I only spoke with Dad for a minute but I don't think I understood more than a couple of words. When he is tired, he loses almost all ability to enunciate his words and clarify his thoughts. That was today. He might have had a very good day; I just don't know. One byproduct of our family trials has been my hearing from many friends who let me know what is happening in their lives. The Internet- what did we do without it? If this had happened ten years ago, I don't know what we would have done. Dad and my Uncle Monroe went through similar trials with my grandparents but life was less instantaneous. I was barely aware until Grandpa came to live with us. Now, we can update daily, almost hourly. It's a blessing. Thanks again just for taking the time to read this and please remember Mom who spent her fourth day today in the West County Care Center in St. Louis.
