Carl made a very quick trip to Memphis this past weekend to help out his dad, who is still recovering from his broken femur. The good news is that airfare was only $150 round-trip. The bad news is he had to drive to Orlando to get that super fare but it was worth it to help out at his parent’s house.
The main project was to install a second hand railing going up the stairs. My father-in-law hasn’t been upstairs in about two months, since before his accident occurred, which means that he’s been sleeping on a bed in the family room and taking sponge baths. Good times!
Now he can finally get upstairs! Yippee!
Carl also installed a hand-held shower sprayer so that when my FIL finally does get in the shower, he can sit on the little shower chair they borrowed from a friend and get his business done.
Carl also did a lot of cleaning up in the yard, including a ton of raking.
Now granted, he’s not actually raking in that photo but I guess he’s entitled to the occasional coffee break.
Before you feel too sorry for him for working so hard, there was plenty of goofing off.
And as expected, Sue made him fabulous meals every night.
He also spent time hanging out with his sister.
Carl is very grateful for the chance to go and help out where needed.
We are grateful that Karl is making such good progress in his recovery and we look forward to having Sue and Karl visit in March.
