He howls, but we assure him he will love the results. When we pick him up a few hours later, with his spiffy Lion Cut and fresh clean smell, he gets a good report. "He just lay there good as gold and let me shave him," the groomer said.
Now look at you! we bragged, as he found a spot in the sun and licked his soft gray stubble. Cool cat.
A few more deeds to do. Drive to Jasper. We're taking Granddaddy to the doctor today, for his radiation treatment at the clinic. He has to go every day, and we're giving Opal and my brother a break, they usually do the transport. He's dressed and ready. Matt carefully pushes his great-granddad out to the carport, helps him into the car. I drive the Buick, following instructions to the T. "Get in the left lane," says Dad. "Slow down." "You're going to turn at the light." "Pull into the first parking place, right by the door." I do as told.
Matt eases the wheelchair through the sliding doors, I sign the checkin sheet. When the radiologist comes out, the bragging begins. "Matthew, this is my great-grandson Matthew, come all the way from Seattle to bring me for my appointment today! Isn't he fine? And you two have the same name, now what about that."
Matt and I wait while the treatment goes on, back in a darkened room. It is #21 out of 45 that he must have. Will they help? Only time will tell.
Love makes the world go round.
