I am missing my dad.
I am sad to report my dad passed away. Two weeks ago, he took an ambulance ride to ICU for fluid in his lungs. After he was treated for pneumonia, my brother and I learned he had COPD.
Approximately two days later, we met with hospice to discuss next steps. That night, my stepmom, brother and I had a wonderful visit with him. To our pleasant surprise, he was alert and talkative. We laughed, cried and said our goodbyes.
He passed peacefully 12 hours later at the age of 81. My solace comes from knowing he is in heaven with the Lord. Rest in Peace Pops. I love you!
I am thankful for my faith, family and friends walking this journey with me as it is the hardest path I have taken.
Please keep our family in prayer for comfort during this very difficult time.
Have you lost a parent? If so, I’d love to hear how you coped.
