With Grandpa at the Loma Linda VA Hospital

Today Astrid and I took my dad to his doctor's appointment at the Loma Linda VA Hospital. My dad's memory has been failing him, which is one of the reasons Astrid and I now go and see him every week to spend the entire day with him. You can read more about that here. Astrid wanted to push my dad around in this wheelchair.

(Recently at a restaurant, my dad fell when his bad knee gave out. Astrid still talks about it. "Grandpa fell. Arm hurt." Since then he always uses his cane, but for long distances it's safer and easier for him to get around with a wheelchair.)Everyone commented that I had a "little helper".There's a large pond on the grounds of the hospital.
