to anyone I may have offended
A couple weeks ago my father-in-law Gene had a stroke and we were devastated. He was to move to STX with us.
However he began a strong recover and he was highly motivated to move to STX with us and was making a strong recovery.
We were very optimistic he was going to make a 90% or better recovery!
The next week I have surgery and the pain is making me a little (very?) cranky. (Addicted once to pain meds and don't want to go there again.)
Dr says I should wait a month to fly.
A couple days after my surgery Gene has another or multiple stroke and the diagnoses was this time he was gone...
Decision was made and he is now in Hospice.
You might have noticed some of my posts were made during sleepless nights.
So please bear with me and I'll try to be good.
No worries. 🙂
You're certainly no more (and a lot less) than some of the rest of us, so no problem. I'm sorry you're going through this & hope your FIL is kept as comfortable as possible in the time he has left & that you recover quickly.
Good luck MIchael. I wish you the best for you and yours.
Micheal, hospice is a great asset, I
hope your FIL rests comfortably. What kind of pain are you experiencing?
Good luck micheal. meds and stress can be hard to deal with..
I have first hand experience with Hospice, as I'm sure many on this board do, and I can tell you it's an amazing organization. Gene will be treated with respect and dignity and kept comfortable.
Hadn't noticed any particular crankiness on your part. Too busy being cranky myself! Good luck with your recovery.
He's gone 🙁
But it wasn't too prolonged and they kept him comfortable.
So sorry Michael.
I'm very sorry, Michael for your loss.
So sorry for your loss 🙁
Ahhhhh........Michael, so sorry!
Please try not to to dwell on the loss, yet live the dream you shared. May his spirit never leave and guide you.............bless
Sorry for your loss
Michael, I am sorry for your loss.
As to the cranky posts, no problem. We all get testy from time to time, especially when we are under severe emotional stress.
It takes great courage for someone to apologize.
You can see in these responses the compassion in this group. I like to think we are all friends here, and friends can - and often do - argue with one another. I was brought up in an Italian neighborhood in the inner city - if you weren't arguing, they thought you were ill!
Do honor to Gene and follow your bliss.
hey michael i've been there and i know what you're going through,it's rough, my mom has been dead for 22 years and i talk to her everyday,and you're fun to play with:-)
it's odd michael but i talk to my god my mother andy warhol and all my dead relatives everyday seeking guidance now that i've sobered up so all i can say is you need to talk to the dead guy daily,it may sound hokey but it works and by doing that their not really dead just "away"
