Dads Gone


Recommended Posts

This past Friday at 2:15 pm. He died at home with us. He was awake and lucide right up until the very end. The pain got very bad thursday but worse on Friday...he didn't last long after that.All through his illness, he kept telling us that he wanted to get better, he WAS fighting, but now it seems that he was kind of fighting a losing battle, knowing it, and trying to protect us, his children. I had to tell Dad we'd be ok and it was alright to go...even though I didn't and still dont want him to go.I also didn't want the suffering to go on any longer.

Right now, Im kind of numb....I have moments of terrible pain and sorrow and moments of acceptance. The wake and funeral are Tuesday and Wednesday. It is not something any of us are looking forward to.

My God this all seems so surreal. Dad was only just diagnosed in January! He slid more and more downhill .

Im greatfull for the months weve had with him, dont get me wrong, but Im greedy, I want more time.

Hospice was wonderful, Im so glad now that we had them. We were visited by many angels and for that Im so thankful.

And even though I havn't been around much, Im so greatfull to you guys and this group. Thankyou all so much.
