Published in the Salt Lake Tribune on 10/18/2005.

The hopeful part is dad never had trouble with arthritis or bursitis so that is encouraging.He had a quadruple bypass at 76 and lasted another 8 years which is what they told him to expect.Mom had a stroke at 76 and though it really messed her up badly. She got alzheimers on top of the strokeand it literally twisted her legs to where her feet pointed backwards and her hand locked shut where you couldn't even pry them open. All my adult life I swore I would NEVER put a parent in a nursing home but reality canshow helpless. Mom lived 2-1/2 years after dad died so we took her for a few months and then Steve and Cookie took her over to Colorado for 3 months and we finally had NO option but to put her in a home in Heber City, Utah. It was heartbreaking but she didn't know where she was and the only one she recognized was Shirley.She thought I was her dad so she called me Papa and she thought Steve was her brother Verl. The real shocker is that the home ran $4500.00 per month and all we got done was fight medicare for help. The total bill hit $84,000.00 and that was in 2005.
