Please convey my very best to Ladybug and her dad if you are in contact with her.
She'll probably see your post before I hear any more from her. Hope you are doing ok.
please give her my regards...so many of us our age are going to be facing these types of things, I wish her all the best...
I hear you 4C...it's scarey and sad.
LadyB has my prayers of strength. I walk where she walks these days. And you are right Forsee, This is the path many of us must travel now.
You've got mail!
So sorry you too are having to face this.......
Please let ladybug know I'm thinking of her - and her dad. I've been there, done that, so I think I kinda know how she must be feeling. My prayers are with them.
Please tell bug we are all praying for her father and for her strength.
Foresee - yes we are all at that age where we have to face this and its sad. It brings to mind a song that someone shared with me that makes me cry everytime I listen to it - the song says it all...
Im am praying as hard as I can for you. Please take care of yourself.
I pray for your father and send prayers to you and your family. I know what you're going thru. Its hard to deal with a family member in the hospital. The traveling , the worrying and hoping takes so much out of a person. My mom passed 5 years ago, and its still fresh in my mind. Seems like it was just a few months ago sometimes, except when I think about the things that have happened since she left us, and all the things she missed. I pray for your inner strength, to get you thru this, you have already been thru enough this year.
So sorry , Ladybug, so much going on with this also
Prayers for your dad, family and you..... the strength to keep going.
Please give my regards to LadyBug. I will keep her and her family in my thoughts. She was one of the kindest, level headed persons on here when I arrived... the Deputy, so it doesn't surprise me at all that she is right there by her father where needed. My wish is that she and the family will have the strength it takes to deal .. whatever the outcome.
I pray God gives you the extra strength you need during these hard times you and your family are facing. I'll always admire you for your humor, kindness to others, and attentivness.
Bless you and those you love....
You are in my hearrt and thoughts: your kindness and humor have helped so many.
I only wish I were there to lend you my shoulder and give you bountiful hugs. Tons of Love, OH
Hey Lady....thanks so much for posting! Poor Bug! I pray she gets some rest and her dad gets better!
Sorry to hear this. You were a friend to me when I really needed one. Please know that I am thinking of you.
I'm sending you postive thoughts and hopes for your dad's recovery. And thanks to Ladywhy for letting us know.
Thank you so much. I know that you all are always here to support, and so many have traveled this road already.
With the constant battles being fought here by those who are sick, alone, going though tx, waiting for tx, or waiting to tx again, I am so thankful to those who have taken the time to respond, and or pray for my family. It means so much to me and I hope thank you is enough...
My father has had a long and healthy life...it's hard to let go but it's the natural order of things.
Pray for those who have not yet lived life to the fullest, and have to struggle with the effects of hep c.
My prayers are for you, my thoughts are with you.
Love and hugs,
I just found this post- I'm sorry I'm so late, but I just wanted to let you know that you and your Dad are in my prayers. Strength and best wishes to you...
I'm sorry you're going through this major stressful life event right now. I've been to the hospital several times over the past few years with my folks and I know how it makes you feel.... I'll pray for you....you've been so sweet and supportive to me and I've appreciated it so much! Blessings to you and your family.
I feel grateful for all the support, but guilty because so many have gone through this already. (like Ladywhy with her dad, or Child with her Mom and brother)
This is really stupid but I use to wonder if it's harder to lose a parent suddenly, (like my mom) or slowly, like my Dad. Has anyone played "would you rather?" Would you rather be pretty or smart? Be invisible or fly? Lose a parent slowly or suddenly?
Silly thing to debate...but I feel blessed to have time with my Dad and prepare for the inevitable.
And twice blessed to have a community who knows all about grief and sadness and suffering...yet still gives me support!
Love and hugs,
I want to fly.
If it were me...cancer or heart attack...heart attack for me...sharp and quick.
I too was grateful that my dad had time to prepare..it was a gift. He was incredibly strong.
I would not want my mother to have to suffer for Any length of time.
Luckily enough I don't have to choose between smart and pretty...just blessed I guess.... :} j/k
Tell me Ms. Bug, where does this guilt come from...hum? 1/2 Irish..maybe something to do with it...ahh...Catholic...definately a contributing factor. Put them both together...and it explains everything. (lol) Now lay down on the couch and let's discuss this. yadayadayda. OK Let It Go! You Are Worthy! You too, have had a terrible loss. Enjoy the fact that your treatment was successful....we are all happy for you.
Lastly, Thank you for your support and the many kindnesss you have bestowed upon me, for real.
LOL...yes I would rather fly too! Guilt does pop up a lotin my vocabulary, thanks for pointing that out...Not 1/2 Irish, it's Scottish Irish Welsh blend on the mother's side. Dad, south of the border you know.
I think it's the Catholic mentality, or maybe it's just me, let me lay on your couch and we can discuss it....
it's the hardest thing to face, next to your own child death, isn't it.
but all the exaustion aside, there's just something more wonderful and full circle about getting to be at a bedside, and express what's in our hearts, even if words themselves aren't used, the love gets communicated.
I did not get to have this goodbye time with either my mom or dad, things were abrupt and left us feeling helpless....and still missing to this day the goodbyes we should have said.
we don't like seeing loved ones suffer, but there's something very beautiful in being there for them that cannot be underestimated in spite of what a struggle it is to be strong. when all is said and done, you'll be glad you went to see him, whether now is his time or not. I got to do that with my aunt, and wouldn't trade it for anything.
Our prayers are with you.
