I know I should know the answer--but it still drives me bananas. Dad is 94, desperately needs to go to the podiatrist but WILL NOT DO IT. His feet are horrendous. Because it is summer he wears slippers and is not affected by his feet bothering him in shoes. But winter is right around the corner.
He would not leave the house this year on Easter to go a short distance to my sister's house. which ruined the holiday for all of us. We went without him and my husband left early to be with him once it began to get dark....and with Christmas in the future I have a feeling this is happening again.
And no, we cannot have holidays at our house with dad; it is a tiny brick ranch crammed with the furniture and belongings of my family of 3 as well as dad and mom's possessions. I have stealthily gotten rid of things but dad has a fit when too much is "missing". Has anyone else had to deal with this problem?
