My dad had an appointment with his neurologist today. The doctor talked with him, watched him walk, and asked me some questions. Even though my dad struggles with his short term memory, the doctor said that he looks really good. He said he understands that it is frustrating for my dad, but reassured him that he is doing very well – especially for a 90 year old who had a stroke at the beginning of the year. He encouraged him to stay active mentally and physically and to eat a good healthy diet. As we were driving home, my dad said he very much enjoyed his doctor’s pep talk.
I Found God today in an encouraging doctor.
