    My 91 Year Old Dad

    In March my 2 brothers & I are taking our 91 year old Dad to Cuba. This time last year I flew home to say good bye. The last part of 2017 & first third of 2018 was really up & down. Best thing that happened was a doctor who prescribed exercise!! Dad attended a rehab clinic at the local hospital; where he started doing Body weight exercises - Wall Push-Ups, Squats, etc. He really gained strength & joy for life. Every time dad thought the nurses were pushing him too hard, he would hear them say to some 70 or 80 year old "look at Bill, he's 90".. Dad would get pumped & push even harder. Exercise, no matter what level/exertion really does work!

          That is amazing. My old relatives are not nearly as active and energetic as your dad. Taking a trip to Cuba? For them going out with their church groups to play some cards is an epic adventure.
