The Best Laid Plans, Etc. Etc…

I had planned on flying to visit my Dad this coming Friday, but the latest news has changed for the worse, so I will be leaving here for the airport in about ten minutes. My brother called late last night and Dad is now in the hospital not only with a morphine drip for the cancer pain, but now also with pneumonia and kidney failure. It’s to a point now where we hope it is quick for him and he doesn’t suffer much longer.

Thank you all for your support during this time and for your good wishes.

I’m off now for a few days…

    It’s a little like walking through a looking-glass, the world turns very unfamiliar. Best to you and your brother in this time of trial and sorrow.

    you’re able to get there. take care . . .

  5.  I`m certainly glad you were able to fly off quickly.

    It`s always special to say your goodbyes.

    I know from experience, both ways.

  6. Thought and prayers.

  7. this is the same thing that happened to me when my mother passed.

    It went from Not Good—to—You Should Think About—to—Probably not a Week Left—to—Get On a Plane NOW—.

    Same with the morphine drip, which put her in a coma.

    She waited til I got there.  When I showed up in her room, the nurse was checking her vitals.  She said, “Wow, her blood pressure just went up.”  My sister and I laughed.  Nurse said, “Oh, you’re THAT daughter.”

    We stayed the night.  In the morning, I told my sister to go home and be with her family, since we had no idea how long we’d be there.

    20 minutes later, the nurse came in to check and said.  Oh!.  Oh.  I’m sorry, she’s gone.”  Mom would never die in front of my sister, she waited for me, the strong one, to be there when she passed.  Naturally!  Of course she did!

    Hang in there, Edger.

    This was in my other comment to you. I think the lyrics say it well

    Lyrics:

    Yes I understand that every life must end,

    As we sit alone, I know someday we must go,

    I’m a lucky man to count on both hands

    The ones I love…

    Some folks have just one,

    Others they got none,

    Stay with me…

    Lets just breathe.

    Practiced are my sins,

    Never gonna let me win,

    Under everything, just another human being,

    Yeah, I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world

    to make me bleed.

    Stay with me…

    You’re all I see.

    Did I say that I need you?

    Did I say that I want you?

    Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool, you see…

    No one knows this more than me,

    As I come clean.

    I wonder everyday

    As I look upon your face,

    Everything you gave

    And nothing you would take,

    Nothing you would take…

    Everything you gave.

    Did I say that I need you?

    Oh, Did I say that I want you?

    Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool, you see

    No one knows this more than me…

    like I come clean.

    Nothing you would take…

    Everything you gave.

    Hold me till I die…

    Meet you on the other side.

    My heart and prayers are with you and your Dad

  8. Thinking of you and wishing you strength, peace, and comfort.

  9. Your dad has blessed this world with his son, and now you

    bless your dad with your love—-

    I’m with you in spirit

  10. …in such times.  And from this we grow.  I am with you and your dad in spirit, Edger.  Blessings to you and all your family.

  11. You will be there for him, and for you, and that is what matters now. Hold his hand, talk to him, let him feel surrounded by and lifted up by love. Let him go in peace.

  12. Peace be with you.  My father passed away four years ago…it is rough.  Be well, friend.
