Writing Prompt- Stroke

17 Aug

Hey everyone.  I’ve been gone awhile tending my dad.  He had (and has) a tumor in his brain that has caused him a very small, mild stroke.  He walks with a walker but hopes to graduate to a cane; maybe even walk freely eventually.  He’s talking great and has his mental facilities still.  We are very fortunate.

However, the man won’t stay home, will hardly stick to his new diet, and won’t exercise properly without verbal headache.  He also groans about everything (please, it’s only, like, FOUR meds twice a day!) and thinks I want him to die when I can’t wait on him hand-and-foot.  I love him but he is literally walking on prayers, because strict adherance to doctor’s orders isn’t it.

Your prompt this week is a difficult family member who has met ill circumstances.  They can be the main character or the antagonist, but the scene is that they need to do something they don’t want to.  This could be exercising, taking meds, taking a bath or making a doctor’s appointment.
