This week with the pandemic panic starting to set in, the stores were completely empty. It was especially challenging trying to find the supplies dad needed for his new situation. During his surgery they completely removed his pancreas and spleen, making him unable to digest foods and produce insulin, resulting in diabetes. He needs a whole bunch of supplies like glucose test strips, lancets, and alcohol wipes to keep everything sterilized and his surgery wounds clean. As my sister and I searched the stores for supplies we were unable to find dad alcohol wipes anywhere, and we dreaded coming back to tell him the news. He FLIPPED his shit and freaked out, terrified that he was going to die. It definitely wasn't funny in the moment, but afterwards we could laugh about it.
