” . . . and work backwards from there”
In conversation with a friend I expressed my exasperation with the obstacles my Dad was throwing in the way of getting the proper care he needed . . . he’d fallen and wouldn’t let us get an ambulance for him.
He’d managed to get into his recliner and refused help.
Mike threw out some ideas . . . before I could swat them all away, one of them lodged. One of them seemed feasible . . .
I thanked him for finding a way of helping my Dad even when he didn’t want it . . . even when my own sense of futility about the whole mess blocked me from a solution.
“Part of it is you have to assume there’s a way, then work backwards from there.”
