Got a call last night from my dd's dad. He has a virus (not HIV) that he may die from. He is having other health complications because of poor health to begin with. My dd has only been able to see him once last summer. She is 8 1/2 yrs old. Do I tell her? I told him last night that if he gets worse he needs to let me know ASAP because she needs to see him again before he dies. He and I have always been friends and never a relationship. Our daughter is a result of a drunken one night stand.
What would you do?

I wouldn't give her any details but tell her that he is sick & could die. I would allow her to see him to say good-bye. Put it this way, if you were dieing wouldn't you want to see your grand-children to visit you? Wouldn't you be hurt if someone didn't allow them to come see you? This is a good way to show/teach respect.
