Loosing the Battle

The cancer is winning the battle in my dad’s body.

Mike spent the night watch at the hospital. Kim & I went home to sleep. They took him off one pain medication and started morphine. He’s breathing more comfortably and doesn’t seem to be experiencing any pain. Family members: If you are hoping to stop by to see him, you should know he’s not responsive.

I’m not going to go into whats occurred over the past 48 hours because my brain is too foggy. He went down hill quickly to this point.

I need to get the funeral home/cremation lined up. Seems to be a family tradition to use Andreasons and that’s what we’ve talked about. We will see where things go today.

  1. We are so sorry for all of you in this Gale. Take everything one step at a time. Lean on each other and your friends. We all love you.

  2. Your family is providing him with care to the best of your ability and there will be a place in time where this situation has been resolved for the highest good of all concerned. Love that the sunset brought you comforting thoughts of India. That energy is always available even in the simplest form of a yarn shop or a stunning sky. Sending love for a peaceful transition.
