knw55 Posted December 2, 2006 Share Posted December 2, 2006 I got a phone call from my step mother today. If I want to see my dad I need to come now. I am leaving for Cincinnati as soon as my husband gets home from work tonight. The hospice nurse said in the next week, maybe a little more dad would be in a vegetative state. She also said in a couple of days dad would no longer be able to talk. His pain is bad, I know he's taking 360 mg of Oxycoton every twelve hours plus stuff in between. He won't go to bed because he is afraid he will die in his sleep and he doesn't want to. I wish I had something to say to him to make it all easier for him. I hate this. I don't want dad to be scared and afraid to let go. I dread this trip, I have to say goodbye to my daddy. Pray for my family please. When I get home Sunday night I'll update.
