WeednFeed's Dad Pretty Sick Man

Recommended Posts

Just a quick note. I've been leaving in the middle of games lately.

Both of My Parents are quite frail Mom is 85 and dad is 88. In the last 2 weeks My dad has been in the hospital twice. He has been in the hospital close to 30 times since totaling his car on, Dec 12. 2017.

He suffers from Congestive Heart failure and Kidney failure both of these are directly related. It's been a long hard road for him over the last 15 plus years but the accident really played havoc with both of their health.

It seems he will be going on Dialysis this week. We thought we were going to loose him last night. The reality is we will loose him sometime it might be days, weeks or months but it still hurts thinking about it.

You see he is the most perfect father, loving, caring, compassionate, kind, strict, strong and god fearing. He loves all his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Last night I told him over FaceTime I loved him He told me he loves me and his family is his WHOLE WORLD.

With Covid-19 I can not even go see him. Our area is in what they call code orange.

So if you got a moment please think of him in your prayers if that is your thing, good vibes accepted as well. He would love that.

If you love someone don't put it off tell them.

Sorry for not being more attentive in game but I know you guys realize where priorities lie.

Thanks

Lost my father last year in August, same situation minus the car wreck.  My mother is not doing well and misses him every day.  As do we.  My father was a fantastic father too.  My mother is too.  But hang in there and we will definitely get the prayers out.  Just enjoy what time you have left and keep in mind he is probably a little scared.  I know my dad broke down and cried a few times with me, because he felt useless and was afraid.  I was with my father when he passed.  I had just told him I loved him, and that I would take care of mom and that he could let go.  Told him I would see him soon.  He passed a few minutes after.

Well I hope things go well for him Weed and as others have said it's tough loosing a parent. I have lost both of mine but I think of them often and it's always good thoughts. Thinking of you and your family in these troubling times.

Thanks everyone, he's a great man. Al we can do is see if this dialysis buys him a little more time. He still wants to stay around he loves the great granddaughters so much. He always loves the kids and the kids always love him. He is the last one of his of all his siblings.  He is the only one who made it to 88. I believe on of his sisters lived to 82. We sure have been blessed to have him this long. 

Some folks tell nightmares about the Canadian health care but my family have had the greatest treatment. Yes we pay big taxes but in my eyes it's been worth it.

I'm very sorry to hear this Weed and I feel you... you and your family will be  in my prayers. I lost my dad 35th years ago on Nov.27th... so many years, but still so very by my side all the time. Our parents are the so precious ! Talk to him as much as you can and tell him how much you love him.

Again thanks a bunch! Very much appreciate the prayers and kind words. 
he has his iPad with him that way he can contact us. That’s been a great tool to help stay in contact with him. 
I’ll be dropping off his sleep apnea machine this afternoon. Every time I drop something off the hospital has to disinfect everything.  
 

thanks again

Thanks again folks. He's slowly coming around. They are still trying to get the fluid out of his lungs. He's been Face Timing us, it's good to be able to talk to him. They have to get rid of that fluid so they can move forward with the dialysis. He was told he will be in for a week just to learn the process. He has been told he must learn to use manual dialysis in case  of a power failure but he will normally be on the machine every night while he sleeps. Man that's something to go through when your 88. He told them he wants to stay around because he has all these great grandchildren he has to love up!

Here he is from left, my youngest brother, oldest brother, dad and myself.
