We had a beautiful sunny day with fall leaves waving in the breeze and birds chirping softly at 11 a.m. for my dad’s service. Thank you to all of you who have written such comforting words. It has helped me over the last few days and I have shared your thoughts with my sister. I will continue to pray for those of you still sitting by bedsides of your dear ones fighting this disease.
Lainey, thank you so much for your words. My father reached up and told my mother he loved her. He then went into a deep sleep. That was Sat. night. Sunday night he died at 10:43. He just stopped breathing. So peaceful. My mom was there and I drove there as quick as I could. I did get to talk to my dad and say so much by myself yesterday morning. I have such a sense of peace knowing my dad is not sick anymore. I am home to get my dog and take her to a sitter for the next few days. Gotta run, thank you for this site as it has helped me over the last four days. In His Love, Genindle
I can’t thank you all enough for your encouragement and support through this site. Daddy slept a good bit today. His feet are swelling with fluid and we see fluid in other parts of his body. He breathes so deeply sleeping. He woke up for a little while this afternoon. He tried to talk but we could not understand him. My mother doesn’t know if she should spend the night. We encourage her to go home and rest at night. I think she will stay the night as we see his time come closer.
Kmemero, you have done everything to help your dad. This disease is uncontrollable from what I see and have read. All the MRIs and scans my dad had did not pick up anything. We had other distractors too (C-diff) and kept thinking we were dealing with the recovery of that. My dad’s color changed too and my mom thought it was his kidneys. That was what got him in for more tests last week. When my dad got to the hospital, he was pumpkin orange. He is still yellow. You are a wonderful daughter and your dad has had you by his side through it all. I will pray for you both.
Lainy, thank you for your sweet words. You are so right. Dad held his hands up to his face today when we were talking about his hands. He wanted to see them. It shocked us and we decided we better watch what we say. ha I am sorry to hear you lost your mom and husband. I know you were great comfort to them.
Peggy, thank you for sharing your story. What great comfort to know you helped your father in his last hours. I hope I can do that for my dad. I have never been with anyone when they died. Thank you for your prayers. I will pray for your husband. He sounds like a strong man with lots of fight.
Pamela, thank you for your kind words. I am so sorry your daughter is ill with this disease. I will pray for your daughter too.
