He isnt eating now after barely eating- or only water for 3 weeks...
I know there are many posts like this, but putting it in writing makes it real.
Went to see him yesterday and at first thought the bed was empty, he is so small.
This great strong WWII Battle of Hatten veteran could barely open his eyes...
Sigh.... so today I will say to go ahead with hospice - Siblings making the trip this week.
I cannot believe I havent visited my mother last week, I will have to tell her place whats going on. Guess I have to call the funeral home to see what they do...
rats....this..... I dunno :(

I;m so sorry for you Mica. I also feel like I never really grieved for my dad, I was just so busy keep Mom going and getting things done. But it hits once in awhile

Mica, I have felt the same way, too. My gosh, I felt so sad for Prince even though I rarely listened to his songs, but when I learned what a gentle soul he was, and he had passed so young, it really tugged at my heart.

My Mom who was 98 had passed late last year and I still haven't cried. Yes, I was sad, mainly for my Dad as he would miss her so much. They had a wonderful life, and I was relieved when she passed as she was just a shell of herself. Maybe I will cry later.

Thank you all SO much!
I awoke that morning with such bad chest pains I thought I was having a heart attack. Then around 10am My brain went blank, like a void, I couldnt move for a while... I called the home just to see how he was doing.
He had been talking to them that morning, then at 10:05 he had a quick heart attack and passed.
So glad the entire family had made their peace with him that week, and he said he wished he could have done more- they all responded he had done so much for them.... I got to lay next to him alone and talk about feeding the birds and mountain climbing.. We were all broken by him, but in the end I feel peace was made. SO thankful he didnt go the morphine coma route-
I feel truly blessed.

Mica, try to remember the good times and let go of the bad. When a bad memory invades your thoughts, redirect your mind to better days. I hope that helps.
