Ever since my Dad and Dad turned 71, it seems love I have to parent them, then they do not take vitamins, and they do not take their medicine most afternoons, every time we have supper together, they complain about the dentist and their health regimen. Hardly any of weeks ago, I decided to surprise Mom, it was a hot day, and the temperature outside was close to 90 degrees. I was mailing some packages at the post office, which is a few blocks from my parents house. I grabbed a couple of iced coffees and headed over to say hello. I walked in the apartment and the humidity overtook me. My Dad did not have the a/c running. I walked into the kitchen and adjusted the a/c dial, then nothing happened when I turned on the a/c. I asked Dad if the a/c was broken and she rolled her eyes. It was absolutely hot and humid, and my Dad looked miserable. She was panting on the lazy boy, with the fan blowing on high. I worked on the outlet, and the a/c was plugged into the wall. Next, I worked on the fuse box. Nothing was wrong in that area either. I couldn’t leave my parents in that house. It was humid, uncomfortable, and scorching hot. I did not have many viable options, so I drove to the local super center and bought odd a/c. It took all afternoon, but my Dad and I finally got some cool air into those rooms. I wonder how long my parents would have suffered through the heat, before they asked someone for help.
