75th birthday

We're celebrating Dads 75th birthday tomo at the city park with a big bbq. His b-day was on the 29th but middle of the week in 100+ temps wasn't happening. We also went to the dr on monday. I needed to get a script for a wheelchair. He's using a cane full time now but his balance is extremely off lately. Plus his memory is almost gone. He's not remembering names an faces of people he's around all the time, plus his speech is nonsensical at least half the time now. Taking care of him is becoming more time restrictive, so i'll b on as often as is possible.
