Topic: My Dad's Passing
It has been 2 months since my Daddy passed away. We lost him on December 24th. I hadn't been able to even write about it but I wanted to share the news here since so many of you were so kind in guiding us during his illness.
He left this world in a peaceful way. I was sitting next to him reading, listening to that terrible rattle that happens at the end, when it was just quiet. Silly me, I jumped up and hugged him and said " Daddy, you aren't breathing!"..I was the only one in the room when it happened. Funny thing is, even though my Mom NEVER left his side during the whole thing, she had left maybe 10 minutes earlier to the store with my neice. My sister called my neice to bring Grandma back home.
There are still so many questions and what ifs which I'm sure some of you here who have lost your loved ones to this illness also have. Just yesterday I kepth thinking all day what if we would have taken him to another hospital in another city sooner? What if the doctor who removed his gallblatter 2 years earlier had seen something in his bile duct? Thankfully, my husband is very good at providing me comforting words and then recalling some funny story about my Dad. I miss him so much. We talked every day. He was such a good Dad and person overall. Thank you to everyone.
