My dad went back in the hospital this morning. He felt very light headed and had the presence of mind to sit down before he feel. If I understood my sister correctly his heart rate was close to 170 and they are saying they need to sync it with his BP so he will be in the hospital for a few days.
He told my sister to take care of my mother when he is gone and that he picked out the music he wanted at his funeral. When we were home a few weeks ago and the entire family gathered he made it a point that I sat by him. He's never done that before. He specifically asked me to sit close to him. I believe he is preparing to go home and I have to tell you in many respects I believe there is a real beauty in this process. He is slowly checking things off of his list and he is doing it with a quiet dignity. I feel very honored to be part of this process.
I see the neurosurgeon at two thirty this afternoon. I'm a bit apprehensive......... well that's a lie, LOL, I am scared.
