So as some of you may know... dad's only has one day left of treatment after today. His birthday is Friday- the day after ending treatment. He keeps telling me "nah, don't get me nothing...I don't want you to," etc...
I need your help. I'm having troubles trying to figure out something special he can enjoy right now. He can't eat- so anything food related is out of the question (I think that was obvious, but in case for those who didn't know yet). He is so hard to buy for! I was going to rent a pontoon and take him out bc he loves to fish, but can't really enjoy any of that right now as he is quite uncomfortable and it is so hot/humid here (heat index making it feel like over 100 degrees!) and I know it wouldn't be fun trying to keep out of the sun. Does anyone have any suggestions? Any ideas? I know he will be feeling under the weather still for awhile, but did anything help keep your mind off things?
I went over last Saturday and got him watching a funny movie, but I know if I bought him movies he wouldn't watch them without me making him lol. I just want to get him something special because he means the world to me and I just want to show how appreciative I am to have a father like him. I'm really feeling stuck on what to get him.
One funny thing I got him as kind of a gag is a variety pack of stick on mustaches. This is the first time I've ever seen my dad without a mustache in 30 years so I just thought he would giggle over it if I could get him to try on a couple (and I'll wear one too!) and take pics! ;)
Seriously though, does anyone have any ideas of things I could get him that he could enjoy now?
Thanks in advance if you have ideas! I'm racking my brain and so far... nothing!
