We were blessed to start the New Year with my mom coming home early. She was doing so well at Rehab that they released her early! She definitely has come along way. Originally when she was first admitted to the hospital she could not move her right arm or her right leg. Today she can walk (slowly) with the use of a cane. She also has regained use of her right arm.

Mom is on board with moving out to our house. Dad wants nothing to do with it. He is old and does not like change.at.all. He wants to stay here and that is that. This is where I tell him the rest of the story. At this point, mom has not told dad about her cancer coming back. I guess she could not bring herself to tell him. So with her permission, I told him.
I told him mom needs help with him, and that she also will need help herself especially if radiation is the treatment for her cancer. He did not really respond, but he was listening. I asserted myself (which was hard to do) and told him that this is the way it is going to be. It is not all about him this time, it is about mom. Mom needs to get better and she needs to not have to worry about him so much.
Tomorrow we are all going out to my home and let my dad have a look around. It will be his first time visiting our new home and I am excited for him to see it. It will soon be his new home too. I also presented to my parents the financial aspects of this arrangement. I think that went well too.
