We are having some very sad days here this past week and it is continuing and we don’t know when it will end. The AH’s dad, who is up on in years, was diagnosed with untreatable lung cancer Monday. The family was told that he is dying. He’s been in the hospital since then and basically the family is having to watch him struggle to breath and starve because, there is really nothing the doctors can do but try to keep him comfortable.
As you can imagine this has been all kinds of unpleasant. We are trying to prepare our children for his death and being that it’s the AH’s dad it has been really hard for him to watch this going on. I won’t get into details but dying is not a pretty thing.
So I’m doing the best I can to support the AH in any way I can as well as the rest of the family. I know that one day it will be me enduring the heartache of a parents death.
So if I don’t post for a while that’s why.
The picture of the sign reminds me of one of the AH’s favorite bands. The Doors.
