Dad is home safe, but I am losing him. How sad I am these days watching my dad drift away from me. Just like Grandma, first the forgetfulness, then confusion, then suddenly I'll be lost. One day he won't know me, it may only be for a moment, a minute or two, but that day is coming. How do you prepare yourself for that day? When the person who made you the person you are doesn't know you.
Perhaps, I'm the one that is lost, running away from that dreaded day.
Millions of children and spouses face this everyday, I know, but comfort in numbers I do not take.
