I just joined a few days ago,and wanted to say hi to everyone,and let people know I'm always glad to listen.I lost my Dad 8wks ago,he was 87yrs young,100% independent,even drove himself to Dr,the day they admitted him.Found out he was very ill but the Drs thought he would have a couple yrs & be able to go home with help at the start.Make a very long story short he did come out of hosp.,came to live with me so I could get him on his feet(I workked healthcare 25yrs)he was ready to go home and had to call 911,he had been vomiting blood all night,but did'nt want to bother me!From then he was in&out hosp & rehab &went thru hell and died 6-7mo after dx.I was always very close to my parents,youngest of 7,&born later in life,but myself&my kids became even closer to him after Mom passed 13yrs ago.I just can't seem to get a grip and I really am trying.!Thanx everyone for listening!
