66 Years Later

You can read the beginning of their love story here

June 15 is my parents' 66th wedding anniversary.  Yes, 66 years!  Here they are today:

If you have read this blog for a few months, then you know Mother is under hospice care.  She was sent home from the hospital the first of March with congestive heart failure.  Hospice comes in Monday-Friday to bathe her and the RN comes twice a week.  Dad is her primary caregiver, though.  I go on Saturdays and Sundays to bathe her and change her, basically to give him a break.  Some Sundays he goes to church. 

Hopefully, by mid-July the insurance will allow her sitter to start so Dad can have more help than he does have. 

God has been so faithful and good to us to allow Dad, at 87.5 years, to still be in really amazing health with a sharp mind to be able to take care of her at home.  Her bed is in front of the dining room window, so she can look out if she wants.  Also, my brother lives nearby and is their "maid" once a week, and he can come if they need him more often.

I am praying for 67 years.
