I am here in Arizona right now. My dad just had his knee replaced. He hasn't been doing so great. He is in a lot of pain, he gets dizzy. I feel really bad for him. I admit, his scar looks a lot worse than my left knee does. It is really hard to watch your parents grow old. I am not enjoying this at all. As a child, you always think your parents will life forever but as you start to grow up you realize it just isn't going to happen. I am so glad I am here to help. This morning when I got up, he knee was really swelled and hot to the touch. It was a little alarming and we thought we might need to take him to the emergency room but I think he is okay, it is normal. Right now the nurse and PT are here.
I have felt bad about having to leave my kids alone. Brad isn't able to watch them because he is working and I have been in Tucson at the hospital. I was lucky enough to be able to spend a little time with Tyler on his birthday. My big boy turned 7 on Tuesday. I will have to post his answers to the many questions I will ask him.
