I'll Miss you Dad

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

God looked around his garden And found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered, ‘Peace bethine’. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home.

    Thank you all so much for your words of comfort and all the prayers. It meant so much to me. It would be hard to go and thank you all one by one as I'm still busy helping my Mother right now and of all things a dear long time friend just lost her 30 yr old son so also have to go see her. When it rains it pours.

Bill loved Hot Dogs so found this hat for him once which is why I had to post his picture. I hope it makes you all smile like it does me.

RIP Dad

Friday, April 15, 2011

Both of Bill's lungs are bleeding and even with the vent on 100% he was having a hard time breathing and one of his lungs looks like he has emphysema even though he doesn't plus he has a fever. Heading to the Hosp with my mother.


The above was earlier and after a family meeting we all decided to stop his Vent as he had very slim hope of coming out of this and he wouldn't have been the same and probably land in a Nursing Home which he would have hated. He was my Step-Dad but the only one who I knew so well sense my BIO Dad passed away when he was 48.

My heart is breaking as he will be greatly missed abut he's with our Lord now that I know and he won't be in any more pain. Thank you all for your prayers and kind words it was a comfort to me.

    Heavenly Father, we humbly ask You to bless Bill's family with peace and comfort in their time of need. We ask that You give them the strength and courage they need at this very sad time to go on like Bill would have wanted them to. We know he has fulfilled his mission here on earth and that's why You called him home. Allow the family to have only fond memories of him and wrap Your loving arms around them. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

God Bless you and the family Dawn. My heart and prayers are with you all. HUGS!

Please PRAY for Bill my Step-Dad

Friday, April 08, 2011

Hi Friends, I just haven't had the energy to write. I finally gathered most of the facts and will copy and paste below. Bill is like my Step-Dad he's been with my mother about 23 yrs or so. I am so heartbroken. Will keep you posted when possible.

Last week:

Went by Ambulance Thurs. at 10pm. I went with my mother as I had always told her I didn't want her going alone. We were in the ER there 7 hours before he got a room. But they were doing X-rays and blood work etc....etc. The reason my mother called to have him taken was he has spit up blood in the toilet bowl and their was quite a bit. He's been spitting here and there bight red but this time was the worse. He was hooked up to at least 8 IV bags if not 9. Had to run a tube down his nose to help the blood drain out of him. I felt so sorry for him. He had 2 different needles in his arm for the IV's and of course they had trouble putting them in. I felt for him then as I've been through that.

Day after that:

He's in ICU on a full mask of oxygen. We never got home and into bed till after 6am. I have been so exhausted. Terri drove my mother up on Fri. They believe the blood is coming from his lungs. They may do an Exploratory on him. He's so afraid he won't leave the Hosp alive. I know I will be traveling with my mother to Upstate alot so she doesn't drive up and back alone. I'm the only one with no family here to worry about going that isn't working.


Bill is on Life Support we weren't home 2 hours and had to fly back as they
told my mother he was drowning in his own blood. Well I spent the night
awake in the Family Rm as couldn't sleep and didn't want my mother to be
alone if Bill died. He made it through the night and is considered Stable
now. He's on some heavy duty steroids which helps with his bleeding. He's
still sedated but they have been waking him up here and there and he does
very well even made eye contact. They're going to try little by little to
wean him off the oxygen and see how he does. Going back in the morning with
her. I slept probably 28 hours. Hope his bleeding doesn't start in again.

Today's News:

They tried to lower the breathing tube on Bill yesterday and ended up putting it back up to 100%. He keeps losing blood and today his left lung was just filled with it. We almost lost him a few days ago. I can't remember what I told you. My mother goes everyday and sits by his side it's heartbreaking. This Wegners thing he has is so rare the Dr. has had to do his homework on it. One of the med's he wants to try Medicare won't pay it's $3,000 so my mother would have to sign she's pay and then you don't know if it will even save him. She can't afford that to add up. WHY in hell medicine costs so much is beyond me. And if it could be life saving how can they refuse? I don't get it.

Found out sense I wrote the above the medicine wasn't FDA approved yet so that's why. Understandable now!!!! This is the latest News.

Dawn

    Thank You all for your loving and caring support it means so much to me. Bill is holding his own. Still on the Life Support though. He has blood in his left lung so I don't think he could breathe easily without it. All this bleeding is part of his rare blood disease. I hope and pray everyday for a Miracle. The Dr. tells us their is "little" hope.

Hope you all have a very good week-end. God Bless all of you.
