Update on Dad

19 Oct

In the middle of the minefield I’ve been in lately, I talked to Mom last night.  Not so good news from outpatient rehab:  Dad is not making progress, not meeting his goals.  They cannot justify his continuing in rehab.  He has a few more weeks and will have to stop.  We can see small blessings and results, but he is just not meeting the requirements to continue.  What a downer.

Mom is so close to the situation that it’s hard for her to see these things.  He really is not making vast improvement.  Plus, I KNOW she feels she holds the glimmer of hope as much for her as for him.  Please pray for my dad, Don Wike, and for my mom, Janet Wike, in this rough time.

    I was so in hopes that things were better. I have continued to pray for your Dad and mom. I know one thing. Watching Bill’s Dad go downhill and making tough decisions for his healthcare has been extremely difficult for us. We are praying for God’s mercies in this situation.

    Just wanted to let you know you and your entire family have our prayers and support as always. Your Dad and Mom have always treated me like a son and Ive always thought of you and your sisters as siblings not cousins. I love you guys and I know this is a tough situation for all of you as it is for myself. If we can do anything dont hesitate to call, Ill be there in a flash. Thanks for the updates and keep your head up. Take care buddy and give my love to your Mom and Dad.
