I've seen worse

Updated: Nov 18, 2022

My dad’s Alzheimer’s was ramping up when I was pregnant with my daughter. When I went into labor he insisted on being there, even though every once in awhile you could tell he wasn’t sure who I was. He walked me around the maternity ward - an endless loop - like a champ. He also got a full front stage view of me having a catheter put in. He started demanding I get an epidural because he had heard me beg for one. When it was over and I saw he had seen the whole thing - I apologized and he said “I’ve seen worse!” We both laughed and I cried a bit. He was the first person to hold my daughter when she was born as I was in recovery from the c-section. I will never ever forget those moments - I was lucky to have them.
