Recovery

Recovery

Dad’s here! And his five stents! Let the recovery begin.

He’s wearing a bracelet that says ‘heart patient.’ He’s still feeling fragile and afraid. He went to bed early, avoiding all desserts and snacks.

Tomorrow, he and I will watch O’Baby all day. It’ll be rainy so there’s not much we can do about going for a walk or anything. We’ll probably just hang out and play, maybe squeeze in a quick walk if the weather allows.

Dad seems scared. I know the feeling won’t last that long – he might be back to his old ways in a few weeks. But right now, he’s so scared of eating the wrong stuff, exercising too hard, stressing out too much. It’s kinda sad, but understandable.

I stocked the house with all kinds of fruits. I have healthy meals planned. I intend to try to incorporate exercise into our daily routine. I won’t push him on anything, but I maybe just present him with some healthy options and give positive feedback.

Physically, he’s fine. He seems to need to heal emotionally now.

We’ll take good care of him.

  1. The loss of confidence can be very difficult to overcome, especially as we get older, but you’ll do a great job with your Dad. 🙂
