...last Friday began predawn when Scott and I
and headed for mom and dad's
bright and early at 7:00 am.
Scott stayed with mom...taking down outside
and running some errands
Dad and I then headed into Scottsdale
for a day of pre-admission
medical routines he had to undergo prior
to his surgery this Wednesday.
We spent a lot of time
in a lot of different waiting rooms.
We talked and waited...and laughed and waited...
and "people watched" and waited...
then...waited some more.
Dad dozed a bit and I drew a lot.
I even got asked at one point if I was an artist
or maybe an illustrator...
Hmmm, go figure.
it was the open sketchbook in my lap
that gave me away...LOL:)
It was a long day...and absolutely not the
most comfortable of circumstances
for my dad...
but I wouldn't trade our "together time" away for
a million dollars.
Spending time with my dad trumps all!
