There is no upside to a broken hip. Especially if you are 91 years old and have Parkinson’s Disease. The one plus is that it brings your sons home for a visit. And that means a lot of laughter because our kids are funny even at middle-age.
As I write this, Seth is here for the second time since February and Jeremy visited a few weeks ago. They think they are here to help, but they are really here to entertain their parents.
At breakfast, I asked Seth if he agreed that his father was about 30% more himself than when he last visited, Peter answered before Seth. “Yeah,” he said, “the bad 30%”.
Seth’s “good one Dad!” made my morning.
