Andrea, my husband is working but at jobs that are not stressful or on call 
24/7 as he was.   For 12 yrs he has taken care of some real estate locations 
for a longtime friend which includes several strip malls & new developments.   
He does the planting, trimming & caring for the plantings which does not 
include grass, over sees the irrigation, cleans up the parking lots, chks for 
outdoor light replacement, makes sure the parking lots are cleaned properly by the 
snow removal companies & a general watchdog for the malls.   He does this 
early, very early in the morning.   He also works for a car wash business 3 
mornings a week but also does mgmt type duties for them 'as needed'.   The business 
is located about 5 blks from our home.   He loves that as he knows so many in 
our community and he is a peoples person.   This requires working outside in 
heat & cold but that is where he would be regardless.   He gets so many offers 
of work but does what he wants.   Our GDs get a healthy allowance monthly from 
his earnings.   Both apply to schooling one to actual costs & the other to 
savings for college expenses in a couple of yrs.
     I can't imagine what he will do when he is not able to be outside or 
handle these jobs.   Hope your dad can enjoy life soon, too.
