Just got home from the ER again, Dad will be spending a few more days. It is most difficult watching loved one's health deteroriate. I got to hunt and fish with my Dad and Brother for many years on many enjoyable trips and it will be those memories that I will always cherish. It's just a giant bummer at the moment. Sharing trips with the son & friends helps keep me in the woods and on the lakes. Life can sure throw a nasty curve ball at times.

HM I can relate because my father is in the hospital right now with two days back to back heart surgeries. Seems his heart is only working at 25%. He made it through yesterday but today is the big one. Only thing you can do is be there for him.

HM & wmi, I'm so sorry both of you are battling through these tough times.
What you two are going through right now are the absolute toughest family situations to have to deal with.
Our prayers are with you both

Thanks for the kind thoughts! WMI, I will be talking to the big guy upstairs to ask for some special help today and also through your Dad's recovery. There is simply nothing more important in our lives than family, which makes loosing them such a giagantic family/personal loss. I appreciate all of your thoughts and posts. I didn't get the chance to save my Brother and now I can't help my Dad (except be there for him) and that at the moment really bites! Thanks for allowing me to vent!

Surgeries went well and he seems to be feeling pretty good. As a matter of fact he is feeling so well I'm a little worried about his nurses safety.:wink:

I wish things were different. Fact is my Dad is not good. Just got home from seeing him. Nearly lost him this morning according to the nurse. He seemed to be in better spirits tonight. WMI, how is your Dad doing following his second surgery? I hope your Dad has a full and fast recovery!

Just an update, my Dad will be going to Hospice care for his final care. I have no idea when God will bring him home. I'm sure that many of you have gone through the same thing and know the heart ache it brings. Sometimes life just really sucks. As I have posted a few times, my Dad and brother were my hunting/fishing buddies for many years. Having lost my brother and soon my Dad is really hitting hard.

HM if there is any positive aspect to view here it is the fact that your dad lived a long and full life. You carry and pass all knowledge and lifes lessons that you learned from him down to the next generation and so on. I think that being able to lead a life to the fullest is truly a blessing from the big man. I also think it is safe to say that you have gained many brothers here in a new age high tech kind of way but were here for you brother!!!!!!!
