Spiritual Food Arrived

Yesterday my dad was wondering if the TV in his room had EWTN so he could watch Mass today. I reviewed the list and it did not. However, we do have the capability of recording programs on the system at the house. I found how to work it on my computer pad and recorded today’s […]

Grateful for Help

My travelling brother and his dog rolled in a few days ago. He decided to come back for a while knowing I needed help. Today was a perfect example of that. My dad called from the rehab at 6:00 this morning needing clean pants. Meanwhile, my mom was awake and exhausted as she’s not sleeping […]

They feel it would be best for him to stay longer than initially thought and has insurance authorization. I thought it sounded […]
