My dad has been such a lifesaver for the past 10 days! He arrived the night before my surgery and has been here every step of the way... helping out tremendously with the kids, dogs, housework, visiting me at the hospital, etc.
I'll admit, I was a little skeptical when he offered to come out and help. I thought he had no clue what he was getting himself into! But, I'm really amazed at what a great housekeeper, dogwatcher, and grandpa he really is! I know the kids loved having him here, and I can't imagine how I would've made it through the past week without his help.
Dad just left, less than an hour ago, to make his way back home. The kids and I waved as he pulled away, and I actually shed a tear or two. I've spent more time with my dad in these past few weeks than I probably have in YEARS, and it's been really nice.
Thanks for everything, Grampy! We all miss you already. XOXO
