I’ve been fairly silent the last week or so. Most of you know my dad has been seriously ill, and I’ve been spending a lot of time at the hospital. My dad passed away on Thanksgiving day. It happened when no one was in the room. The nurse had told my brother-in-law that many times a patient will not pass while someone is in the room. We’ve been constantly making sure someone was with him at all times. The nurse told my brother-in-law (he was the only family at the hospital at the time) to go get something to eat. My dad died while he was gone. So all of us constantly talking to him and being there might have been what caused him to hang on. Maybe we were keeping his soul trapped instead of letting it be released. I’m just not sure. Our family has been exhausted this whole time, so his passing was a mixture of grief and relief. We’ll all miss him.
Anyway, I just haven’t had the energy to blog or comment much lately. I’ve visited a few and maybe said a word or two, but I just can’t get up the energy to say much. Hopefully, my life will return to a semblance of order on Monday. I’ll still be sad, of course, but I have to get back to life.
