The first indication something was wrong with Jane’s father was after a situation she now calls the “splintering incident.”
He was 87 years old and had driven into the side of the garage. “His foot slipped off the brake,” her mother told her.
Jane and her husband Mike laughed it off. “After all,” they thought, “that kind of thing happens, right?” Only, the same thing happened just a couple of weeks later.
That was the beginning of a long season of tough decisions and rollercoaster emotions for Jane and her husband, Mike.
