A Birthday and an Accident

Hi everyone,

The last week has been busy for Doug. We celebrated his birthday last week with a small party, pizza, and cake. All of his grandkids were in attendance, so it was a surprisingly energetic party. I think it all wore him out pretty bad as he's been sleepy and confused. On Saturday he had another fall which resulted in a broken ankle. He keeps thinking he can stand up or move himself, which is proving very dangerous for him. He is in a boot now, so hopefully that will serve as a reminder to stay put. It is quite a journey for him to make it into the clinic or ER, so hopefully he won't have to do that too much. [...]

Welcome to Posthope

Welcome to Doug's Posthope site.  Some family and friends feel it's time I swallow my pride and let them help us with this on-line benefit for Doug's care.  I won't go into that detail but just know medical coverage for someone in Doug's condition is pretty sad after a period of time.  This site is not to replace his Caringbridge site.  He takes pride is creating that pretty much by himself.  I'd like to keep that going.  I will use this to update his current condition.  I'll start with last week.[...]
