well the past few weeks dad has been very up and down..some days he wont get out of bed and others his mobility is fairly good.
So today dad seemed fairly alert..we decided to go into town on his mobility scooter, to do some shopping and just get some fresh air.
During our trip my dads space awareness became none exsistent, he was heading straight for a bollard and a vegetable stall...i was calle out to him to let go of the lever that makes it go..it wasn't registering with him and infact he pressed it harder so ive ran too him and tried to steer it out the way but it was an epic failure lol...
i ended up getting trapped between the bollard and scooter with my legs in the air, dads scooter went backwards and was practically doing doughnuts.
The veg store was all over the floor, there was avacados all over us. i managed to get my leg free and turned to see if dad was ok...well he was crying...WITH LAUGHTER!!
He could not stop laughing, which made me laugh..and before we knew it..neither of us could get up due to laughing 😂😂
it was strangely wonderful. we are home now and my ankle is safe from the scooter, FOR NOW lol. But it was so nice to see him laugh like that, and something i will never forget.
Merry christmas to you all..sending my love and blessings
