Checking in with mom and dad
Every few months when I have the chance I like to fly back home to where I am from to visit my mother and father.
Now that my parents are getting older I need more help managing more of the simpler day-to-day tasks, I feel much more inclined to make these visits more frequent than in past years. just last month there was an incident that ended up happening at their house. you even have me start to consider moving them in with me full time. According to my mother’s side of the story it all happened in the middle of the night when the air conditioning unit stopped working in their home. My father is and has always been a very prideful man. So he took it upon himself at the ripe age of 83 to try and repair the air conditioning unit on his own. To keep a long story short my father ended up leaving a huge gashing wound on his hand that required them to head to the emergency room. Now that I am at a point in my career where I am financially stable I never want my parents to have two potentially hurt themselves just to fix something like that AC system. while the idea of moving my parents and with me sounds smart and reasonable in my head, actually getting them to agree to the deal is a totally different story. Despite how complicated they might be when I bring it up however I will continue to try and convince them because I love them, and I want to be able to take care of them as they age.
