Unexpected grief...

Although it was only a few hours ago of writing about such a lovely day, I unfortunately received a call from my aunt and the facility where my father currently is, informing me his condition is deteriorating quickly.  So much, that I've been told not to expect him to make it through the night.

I'm not sure if this is it or not, but my heart is very heavy with grief and sadness tonight.  I can't stop crying...

UPDATE:  It's mid-afternoon on Monday and just received a call from my aunt that my dad was placed on oxygen this afternoon as he can no longer breathe on his own.  I can't bare much more, really.  I feel completely helpless and guilty doing anything other than focusing on my father.

  14. I am so sorry to hear this. It's never bearable to know someone you love is suffering. There is nothing you can do of course, but it sounds like everything you could do you have done. Your dad surely knows that.

  15. May all be well. There is no easy time with an aging parent. The letting go maybe the hardest of all. I have lost both my parents, but they had full lives and I celebrate that in my heart all the time.
