Dad keeps me going

JUST LIKE TO SAY WHEN I FEEL LOW I THINK OF MY DAD. HES 92 THIS YEAR AND HE NEVER MOANS. WHAT A STRONG CONSTITUTION HE HAS AT THE MOMENT ASTHMA STAGE 5 KIDNEY FAILURE CRONIC DIABETES ANEMEA NUEROPAPHY ETC AND HE STILL GOES OUT EVERY DAY WITH ME. I ASKED WHATS THE SECRET DAD YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO GO UP AND DOWN WITH THE WAVES. HE SAID HIS IMMUNE SYSTEM MUST BE GREAT. HE PLAYED WITH DRAINS WITH A STICK AS A BOY LICKED THE MARBLES CLEAN OFF THE PAVEMENT 10 IN ONE BEDROOM. AND A SENSE OF HUMOUR TO DIE FOR. IM SO LUCKY. ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE.. FAVOURITE SONG.OF DADS BLESS HIM

You dear Dad sounds lovely. I am going to remember his words 'you have to learn to go up and down with the waves'. Brilliant.

Hi there whinniethepooh, your dad is a real trooper bless him. I admire his positive attitude, and the way he excepts things and deals with everything that comes along. He really is an inspiration to all of us. You are very lucky indeed to have him on board ✋️😊

Your post brought tears to my eyes. Such a special person. Its not easy dealing with ill health. "Laugh and the world laughs with you - cry and you cry alone". Belonging to a group like this one makes you realise that compared to others we are not so badly off. Thanks for posting.
