Fly like a bird

“I’m not a cripple!”

Dad got mad when Mum took him to the doctor, at my request, to see about getting a walker.

“Since it’s here,” he said to her later on, using it to get around the house.

By the time I arrived back on the farm, he was swinging the thing around like a dance partner.

Yesterday’s update from Mum:

“I took Dad to the market for an outing this morning and he met up with buddies,” she writes, “He asked if he should take his walker and I said, ‘lets give it a try’. Well, he flew like a bird around the whole place, so you could say it was a huge success!!!!”


About Morbid Optimist

My name is Katryna Mary Brooke Ormiston. I am 35 years old and after living in Vancouver for a decade, I am returning home to my 81 year old father’s hobby farm on Vancouver Island to care for him in the final stages of his life. This blog is to document my journey, process my experiences along the way and hopefully share and feel connected to a community beyond the three and a half acres I find myself on. A message in a bottle in the cyber-sea.
