Cant sleep.
Pops in ICU and fam has decided to stop further procedures.
Should be over with this afternoon
But maybe not.
Gonna happen soon enough
Hope the old man has a smooth transition.

Had a good run, mobile and sane til recent. Had health issues, not unexpected.
So the last bit a little bumpy but overall a good run.

Thankful for the great medical people. Indeed some have a calling.

Take care Champ. Gonna miss ya.

Strength to you and your family.


Critical thinking not needed.

Tough enough, then factor in the covid restrictions in place at most hospitals, makes a really hard situation worse.
Good thoughts to you and your family.


Theyre creepy bastards that are feeling you out. If all goes right, yall strike up a confidence and next thing you know youre at his house, in his cistern being fattened up so he can make a ladysuit out of you.

Thanks.
Couldn't see him in rehab before but hospital is fine. WTF
Sedated, some response. Kids went last night, glad they did.
Didn't want them to have any feelings of regret, not that there would be any whatever they chose.
People grieve differently.

Odd, I don't want to say goodbye.
Am cool with him passing.

Stupid but I just can't say it. I just told him to rest easy last night.
Kinda struggling if I can actually say goodbye out loud today.

Sorry for being such a twat about it.

Stay strong during this difficult time...

Don't think you're being a "Twat"
We each will cross this bridge in our own way.

Prayers sent..... Lost my dad years ago and one part of his wisdom was that it was better that he should live to a ripe old age and have his kids at his funeral versus him having to attend the funeral of one of his four children. Makes sense when you think about the natural life cycle but it's still never easy.

Prayers for you and your family hookeye.
That’s a tough spot to be in. Your confusion is understandable.
No need to say goodbye.......rest easy is fine, or whatever you want to say.
Will be thinking of you and yours.

Sounds like your father has led a long and exemplary life, many good deeds to take with him to the hereafter.

Was not a fancy guy.
Outlived his brothers.
Didn't bury any of his kids or grandkids.

Ups n downs but a decent life where he was content.
Certainly could have been worse, maybe better.
Marched to his own drum.

Drummin stops in a few.
Just the way it is.

Thanks for the prayers and good vibes. My kids are gonna be there.
Ive seen this stuff before, they haven't.

Sorry to hear. You’re sending him off with honor. We’ll tip a glass to him at the appropriate time.

Hang tough,
