At work and Dad's in the hospital
Friday, September 06, 2013
What is wrong with me? I went to the hospital, saw that Mom was a wreck, and that Dad is doped up, and I gave him a hug, and left Mom with the hospital minister.
Yes, I'm in shock. Dad could be dying this time, and here I am doing my job as usual, trying to figure out my next step. What do I do now? Mom isn't together, and doesn't want to bother any of us with their troubles. I did call my nephew, who called his parents. My other brother is on a hunting trip. My sister is on a remote island doing a concert, but it's a remote island in my half of the world, not her's.
I have power of attorney over their advance directives. I feel like I should be there, just in case. Is that ghoulish, or just my job?
