I hope next time you call 911, if there is such a need. The emergency folk come with skills and objectivity. Reality check for your dad. He might be stubborn, but he's scared. Nobody was thinking straight, hun. You use your better judgment to over-rule your son when he has ideas that aren't safe. That's what parenting is all about. Please, don't be afraid to mother your dad.

Good call.

If you talk to your son about how scary that whole thing was for you, I think you'll open the door to making it more comfortable to talk about it. He helped you get your dad up. He was there for your dad, and there for you. Show him respect for that, and the fear will fade.

Hugs to you all,
Lar
