    Distance is difficult

    My father-in-law, Dwayne 95, is in Wichita, KS, in a care home. He has dementia and well cared for. Unfortunately he has had many falls in the past year, requiring ER visit a few times. We got word that he fell last night and is at ER. Normally this wouldn't be too much concern, but there is a good chance he may have broken hip, and could come in contact with Covid-19. We have always been on alert this past year, should we need to make a quick trip if he should pass. Now this would be out of the question. Canadians are not advised to travel, and it would be risky health wise for us.

    Please keep him in your prayers. Thank you.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

              Special thoughts for you and your family. Perhaps a face time chat would be an option. It’s not quite the same as a visit but may be a way to chat with him.

                  Prayers. A couple of events happening at many of the hospitals is a fever and symptom check before anyone is able to walk in the door. Plus elective surgeries are being cancelled so there are few people who are around the hospital and hospitals are limiting the number of people who can even enter the building. So hopefully, this will help cut down on his chances of being exposed to the virus.

                      Update - Dwayne was released from hospital. DH's niece took pictures. His face and head are all bruised, and needed some stitches. It almost looks like he was punched, but then again falls can cause similar bruising. We're not going to think the worst of it. We will talk with his niece hopefully today and reach the home. Since he has dementia and forgets to use his walker, falls have been a common occurrence this past year. It is difficult to assess possible concussion.

                      Your continued prayers are appreciated. Thank you.

                      Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                        I was just thinking about him today. I'm glad you posted an update.

                      It is hard enough when family members live so far away but under these circumstances even more of a worry. I am glad he has family nearby to keep you in the loop. Thinking of you as you wait for more news.
