Will add them both to the list.  My greatest hope is that they both know the savior.   

I am glad youre involved.  Many children cant be bothered with mom and dad in their twilight.

Thank you for all the kind words, thoughts, and prayers.
My dad is hanging in there, but may not have a lot of time left.
Still all there mentally, sharp..  gives me phone numbers of who to call and what he wants +details on where to find from memory.  but bed ridden in electric lazyboy recliner as he hates the hospital bed they installed in his home.

Cynthia, his wife who has lied to me about her age since 1992 (she is 79), is getting better and surgery to set her broken bones is tomorrow morning.   We are praying she will be home by Thursday.   I am here with my dad and we have reconnected in several ways I had not expected.   My brother will be here to take over later this week, and dad, he has 2 of his bothers coming this weekend..   One is a retired lawyer and the other a retired thoracic surgeon, while my dad was an accountant.. been trying to think of a joke where the three of them walk into a bar. :-\

Good to hear the time has helped with reconnecting.  Glad the brothers are heading in.  All this I hope have lifted his spirits.    
Sounds encouraging about the wife's recovery too.

Hi,
I am very grateful for all the kind thoughts and prayers along with mine and our family's, with considerable difficulties my dad is still with us, much to the surprise of the caring hospice staff helping us.  

His wife was able to come home from hospital on Friday and is by his side, and 2 of his brothers were able to visit and spend some time and final moments with him.   It was Cynthia's and Ray's 28'th anniversary on Sunday.
Sadly he is beyond talking but does listen (semi-alert) and responds with yes and no to our 20 questions about his needs.  He is still in his electric lazy boy and was able to speak out a 'Hell No!' when the hospice nurse suggested we get him out of the chair and into the hospital bed they brought here.   He hates hospitals, especially the beds which is understandable after over a year of cancer treatment during covid19.


There is somewhat a joke that came out of his brothers visit..
He had these catheters in his back (forget what their called), that caused him much discomfort and were put there for a kidney infection he had just before going into hospice care.   They became quite a problem for him, but the hospice nurses were having difficulty getting the Urologist to visit him to remove them, he (the Urologist) wanted to do this in the hospital and not in my dad's home, and once dad entered hospice he was no longer his patient.
I tell the hospice nurse to be sure to tell his urologist that his 2 brothers were visiting him this weekend, and one was a Lawyer and the other a Surgeon, and they would be quite upset to see him in his discomfort, and even more upset if he didn't survive until they were able to get here.   The Urologist was here that evening to remove the catheters ;D.

I am so sorry you had to threaten them to respond to your dads discomfort but super proud of you for standing up for him. 

The hell no means he is still himself and explains where you get your moxie. 

Thinking of you all.

My Dad finally found comfort early July 21, still in his lazy boy with family at his side and his fiercely loyal American Bulldog at his feet.



 


Having flown only once in an airplane as senior in high school, my Dad decided he wanted to be a pilot. He went on to be a Navy Aviator as a Lieutenant flying helicopters from aircraft carriers, chasing Russian submarines during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and volunteering for the Vietnam War.

As a veteran, he was always deeply troubled whenever disrespect was shown to the flag of the United States.

Rest in Peace my Dad and Best Friend.   May the sky always be clear and fish always be biting.
In writing his obit, I realized he and we are truly blessed as at 80 he was only predeceased by his parents.

There aren't  nearly enough examples of love and honor like your father in this world . Glad he has found peace, prayers for his loved ones left  behind.
