My brother Fred, actually Freddie is what he is called at home, is here for 10 days. He lives in Calgary, Alberta and he returns home 3 or 4 times a year.
For the past 9 months my father has required more care at his home.....in terms of someone being there overnight and in the mornings. So Freddie wants to 'contribute' when he can. He stays with Dad overnight and gets all the meals.
This is a break for the rest of us and we really appreciate it when he does this. Thanks Freddie. I know my sister Marilyn from Edmonton, Alberta will be reading this, so I better thank her as well. She too spends time with Dad when she is home and we are grateful as well to her.
Only one of the perks of having 7 brothers and sisters.........sharing the wealth!
