Watching my father die, need company

Posted by   + Show Post

Or maybe a good argument to keep my mind occupied. I flew into Boston from Poemix with my five year old son. My mom and half brother picked us up at the airport and we came straight to the hospital. As recently as this morning they thought he had a couple of weeks.  When I called to tell my mom my plane was delayed she told me he had less than 24 hours.   So we came straight from the airport. They stayed a little while and then went home. I'm spending the night in his room.

Virtual hugs and positive thoughts headed your way. I spent a couple nights in the hospital with my step mom. When she was released to hospice it was so much easier.

This sucks. My father was an alcoholic, prescription drug addict, abusive son of a bitch. He was awful to both of his ex-wives and all three of us kids. I didn't think his passing would affect me so much. Is sure as hell doesn't seem to affect my brother or sister.  She lives in Boston and hasn't been to see him at all my brother flew in Friday night and came for about an hour yesterday and maybe 20 minutes when they brought me here. I know everybody deals with things different'y. But he is our father, all of ours. And nobody, NOBODY deserves to die alone.

About 5:30 now and we made it though the night. The nurse and aide are bathing and turning him now slim in the cafeteria eating crap from the vending machine cuz the car isn't open yet. I'd say under the circumstances I made pretty okay food choices.  I wanted chips but got pretzels. I wanted a Snicker but got Starburst. Okay, the candy was a mistake, they were right next to each other and I just hit the wrong button. But starbust are gonna mess with my tummy way less.
