Polio got in some good licks though, and for the last 25 years or so, he has needed a leg brace to strengthen "the polio leg".
He fell and cracked his knee cap a few weeks ago, so we have all been helping out, taking care giver shifts, and generally trying to take some of the load off my Mom.
There was a scary incident this week that required a trip to the hospital for an overnight stay while he was checked out by the doctor. Luckily, Mrs. FC was there when that happened, so the incident was handled quickly and professionally.
(She is an RN)
He's home now, with a home health care nurse scheduled to come in and help with physical therapy, etc.
For a while at least, a wheelchair will be a big part of his life, so I am working on a ramp for the back porch this weekend. I have one landing about done and am dashing into Home Depot after this post.
(Thank you Barnes and Noble WiFi)
Just wanted to pop in and explain the lack of critter posts this week.
