After a long, emotional, exhausting week, dad has been moved into the nursing home. He is somewhat confused and disoriented, but I think that he will eventually adjust to his new living environment.
Mike and I spent a lot of time and money trying to make his room as homey as possible. I am not at all domestic, so I was quite out of my league, but I gave it my best shot.
This is the room he was assigned.
A little retail therapy was in order...
The new adjustable temperpedic mattress and the dresser we bought for the room.
A good friend of mine is a CNA in his wing. I know she will take extra good care of him.
I spent all day Wednesday working on the room. The furniture was delivered and set up and I organized it to the best of my ability. I filled the drawers and closet with dad's favorite things and all of the new things we bought.
I took this picture in late afternoon. I was standing in front of daddy's window. The clouds in the distance hide a great view of the mountains and the Yellowstone River is just across the road from the facility.
This is what I saw out dad's window as I prepared to leave for the night.
The next day, the new Sony flat panel TV was delivered.
The first evening in his new digs.
This sunset greeted daddy as he prepared to spend his first night away from home in 48 years. I believe it is a sign of beautiful things to come.
