I will probably continue to have dreams of dad for the rest of my life. Today is better than dream stuff, I get to talk to the real man, am going to go visit him before work. Yesterday before work I told him I would have 8 photos of him in his part of the show (1 more than before). That we were expecting 100 or more guests and that there might be a CBC radio interview. He was happy to hear all of that stuff.
Mom is going to rent him a hospital style bed for the house, which will make life a bit easier and more pleasant for my father. It should come sometime next week, I need to clear a space for it across from the TV. Tuesday when the exhibition is completely hung and waiting for the guests, I can finally relax and spend more time with dad, am looking forward to that.
One interesting thing I have noticed with all my visits to dad this year. When I arrive I usually meet mom first, I can tell by the tone of her voice immediately if dad has had a good or bad day. Moms mood tells me everything before I meet dad. If she is down, if her voice sad, unsure then dad had a bad day, if she smiles and speaks with some joy in her tone, dad had a good day. I guess that's what happens when you have a happy 57 year marriage, most everything is connected to that other persons well being.
