We all know it's going to happen......parents get old, sick and then pass on. But we are never ready when the end is imminent. My sister and Mom actually got called to the hospital this morning as Dad is worse than he's ever been. No blood pressure and respiration really high. No known reason this time. Before we knew he had the heart attack and then his kidneys went down, but this time nothing except it's just that time. We'll see. He's still an onry ol' coot and you just never know. Waiting impatiently for the doctor to arrive and tell us what is possibly going on.
My Dad has always been my confidant. I used to get up at 0400 to go milk the cows and gather the eggs with him. We talked about flying and construction and made lots of things together. He will be greatly missed when he goes.
