My dad has, for the most part, adjusted to his new life. Some days the pain is real bad, but more times than not he is doing good. He sleeps a lot but when you spend 90% of your time at home there's not much else to do (he does go to physical therapy 3 times a week). Right now the worker's comp is trying to get the insurance adjuster to pay for a handicap vehicle for him. He's already put in an application for a Honda Pilot with hand controls and a wheelchair ramp that allows him to go right up to the steering wheel. Once he does this, he'll have more freedom (and won't have to rely on me for transportation-a service takes him to therapy).

He turned 66 on Monday and today my sister has planned a suprise party for him. After I take him to a doctor's appointment, my uncle David is taking him to lunch and Wal-Mart while we set everything up. Just about all of my dad's friends will be there as well as my sister's kids, step-sister Tammy, and my mom (and maybe her husband-I secretly hope he doesn't because my dad does NOT like him). However, I'm sure my dad could supress his dislike for him as this is more than just a birthday party but a celebration of his recovery and the respect we all have for his ability to overcome.

Once again, thank you HoM for your thoughts and prayers. I really think somehow it's contributed greatly (though I could never really prove it in this life).

Glad to hear things are progressing in a positive direction. I'm sure the party will be a boost to his spirits.

He absolutly loved the party. He says it was THE best birthday he ever had. I got to see people I haven't seen in over a decade. Everybody had a blast. Even my cat stayed out in the open and even let people pet him.
