I just came back from a great vacation - 5 days out in the Sierra mountains, just me and a backpack and a couple close friends. Sadly, as soon as I got back into cell phone range, I got a list of texts from DH, getting more and more urgent about my dad. Thankfully, the last one said 'crisis averted - call when you can'. Apparently he was throwing up blood yesterday, but refusing all tests. The day I left for my trip, he decided to fire his caregiver, and stop taking his meds. I worry about my dad a lot, but at the same time, his behavior is exhausting. I'm sure he is expecting me to hop on a plane and figure things out for him, but I told him last time was THE LAST TIME EVER, and I'm sticking to it. I'm talking with his social worker, and she will figure things out just fine.
