As I have mentioned before, Dad loved the library. I visited the local library today and asked if I could use his card.
The librarian’s face lit up. “Patrick was such a sweet guy.”
I caught her up on Mom’s medical situation and it turns out her Mom had colon cancer as well. Small world! She said her Mom refused to deal with the colostomy bag as well.
She also told me how towards the end, before Dad went to the nursing home, he would sit down at a table and take all of the contents out of his wallet. They would gently encourage him to put everything back.
Dad kept going to the library even when he probably forgot what the place was for.
