It is so tricky to see your parents getting older… I still believe of our dad as a spry forty year old human, but the truth is, he is not anymore, but he is seventy-one years old, and he is starting to show his age.
He has consistently been an active person, and he has always seemed to be extremely young for his age, so no one ever believes myself and others when I tell them that he is in his seventies.
He fell down the stairs recently, plus it honestly hurt his pride. He was not willing to go to the hospital however I really know that he broke his leg, and even though he can barely get around right now because of his falling incident, he still did all that he could to get his cooling system from the attic plus install it in his family room window. I could not believe that he even had a cooling system in his attic or else I would have brought it downstairs and installed it for free. Naturally, he did not ask for help but he honestly should have. I went over to his home Last year afternoon to check on him, plus I saw a cooling system in the front yard right outside the family room window. I picked it up and took it indoors, and there was a small piece broken off of it, but it still worked. I asked our dad what had happened, plus he told myself and others about getting it from the attic. I was so annoyed with him, however I did not want to show him that, so I just installed the cooling system and took off. I decided that I am talking him to the hospital tomorrow whether he is in love with it or not.
