    “Father’s Day”…

    Everyday should be “Father’s Day”. I love(d) my father so much everyday. I am missing him more than ever…but I have no regrets.

    Hang in there Precious Barb,

    Hospice is not the ‘end’ of a matter…you are right, they are just there for 24 hour care to assist in caring for your needs.
    I hope your ankle heal quickly so you get get around soon.

    Being off chemo, perhaps you can get stronger to enjoy your son:)

    Hi Bazel,
    I went to the dr yesterday for an ear infection and I spoke of my father, David Cook, who passed Dec 30, 07. I asked the dr if it was hereditary and he stated it is a rare disease and stated its not hereditary. Thats all he said, no other explanation…..

    Hello All,

    It’s me, celoi, (Charlene), David Cook’s daughter,

    http://www.mem.com/movie/MovingMemories.asp?ID=2203574

    This “Grief Management- Babbling of a grieving person thread is a great idea… I know my mind wonder WAY BACK……

    My father passed Dec 30, 2007 and my life has not been the same officially since diagnoses June 21st, 2005.
    I did ALL I could humanly do. I am actually still in totallshock that I do not have my father….I never ever imagined in my life, I would be with out him. EVERY Sunday morning, betweeen 9-10am, I relive being at Hospice- ALL the drama from previous days as my father, lay taking his final ‘baby breaths! My dad was a very dignified man, with a large heart and always cared about others. I am very angry that its my father in a box! He was tired though….I can only imagine. My father passed at 9:50am on Sunday morning and I can not get out of my mind, his breathing, so softly and there was nothing I could do, but just watch. Every Sunday morning, I relive that moment!
    Its not one day, or hour that pass, which I do not think about my father. We were so close. I try to think of the happy times with him, that keeps me going. He loved me so, so much and I will never forget him.
    I personally think ‘people’ think you are stupid when you do not speak up..thats not the case.
    When my kids cry periodically about losing him, it saddens me even more that they do not have such a warm person as my father in their life now. My youngest said he missed PaPa laughing at him. Yes, my dad was so full of life.
    He wrote me a letter which I found after he passed and I read it over and over….
    My dad was a wonderful man…

    Great idea Chase,

    I will allow my 2 sons to join. Khalil 12, Sayeed 6. We lost my father, their grand father David Cook Dec 30, 2007. They are missing him so much and it will be good to communicate with others in coping.

    I read of your family blog from the beginning and often and keep you all in my thoughts.

    Hugs and Kisses

    I have been where you both are…it is very difficult. We only want the best for our loved one and we do not want to just give up….keep up the fight. I did not give up until my dad said “Its enough, just let me sleep”. On the last hospital visit, the dr want to do dialysis. I asked if it would work, she said its not guarantee….I just could not put him though more pain and misery just so I could talk to him every day. I had to pray about it…if dialysis would save his life, I would have did it in a heart beat. But the dialysis would have been hard on his body also becaue he was so weak. I loved my dad dearly, and missing his very badly. Its not a day, a hour that pass that I do not think of him.
    I am wondering if I made the right decision in refusing dialysis, however, I read over some recent records I got from his house, and there were other issues going on I was not aware of.
    I am very disappointed how my father ended up….I think if he had additional help, he would have been here. He did not pass from cholangiocarcinoma in my opionion…
    I encourage you to keep up the fight. Don’t give up!
