Members fayesgirl Posted November 26, 2009 Members Report Share Posted November 26, 2009 Well, here goes I hope this helps.. I came home to help with my dad after his 2nd stroke. My dad and I are very close and have always been. He called me on a weekend night asking me to come home. So, I left my job after 16 years and started over again to come home to help with my family. My dad at the end had a total of 4 strokes and 2 heartattacks, renal failure, kidney failure and a list another mile long. If you looked at my daddy you would have never known he was sick. He was always strong with the will to live no matter the cost. I live right across the street from my mom and dad, he passed away on November 15th 2009. I held his hand as I told him Daddy it okay if you have to leave I promise that I will take care of mommy! Then he took his last breathe and i have been a mess ever since. I am not sure that I was ready for what I have ahead of me without him in my life. It was in and out of the hospital for years and nights of not sleeping helping mommy with dad. I never thought he would really ever leave although he was so sick. He lost alot of the memory he had of day to day functions but always knew me without me saying a word. Today was so hard when it was just me and mom at the table eating without daddy.He is the greatest daddy in the world and I miss him so much. I would give anything to hear him say ..... Hello sissy come in here and get a cup of coffee and take the load off your feet.. I love you.......I think I have finally reached my breaking point, losing my dad was half of my life. I have so many things I need to ask him, so many things I have to do, My mom misses him so much 38 years not a week apart, What do I do now, I miss my dad..........
