May 30, 2008...the day we lost him! My father-in-law passed away at 3:57am..12 mins after the hospital called the family to come to the hospital. We were not told any information other than just to get there...I had a feeling, while driving up there, that something did not feel right!
We stayed by his side for about 5 hours. The kids cried so hard, as we all did. When it was time for the nurses and doctors to take his body, we all hugged and kissed him. In the last 14 years that I have known him, I never told him thank you or even let him know that I appreciated everything that he ever did for me. I finally had the chance to tell him. When I leaned over to kiss him on his forehead, I whispered in his ear "Thank you for everything you have ever done for me. I love you!"
So...I have been a little out of it this last 2 weeks, as far as my eating and exercise. But this is a new week and I am starting over again.
