Dad will probably be released on Monday. I've already called my boss so he know I'll probably take the day off to pick them up and take them back to Manhattan. We were already planning to spend the first week in September in the country with them. If dad's up to it, we'll keep to that plan, except I'll drive them up on Sunday and back when we leave. This will give them a chance to pack up the country house and close it down, prepratory to selling it.
Oh, this is so sad - they LOVE that house. They LOVE spending the summers up there, and their friends and synagogue and charities. But Mom hasn't been able to drive ifor a few years, and now Dad can't drive. It's not possible for them to be there without a car.
Thank you again for all your kind wishes. I appreciate all of them. I'm just happy they're going to be all right.
