For those of you who don't know, my Dad passed away Friday evening. My dad had a lung disease that developed more rapidly than anyone could have predicted. Without going into details, and honestly I'm not up to that yet, Dad went into the hospital Monday evening, Wednesday they were discussing changing his medications, he ate a Jigg's dinner, Thursday my sister called me and told me we had to come home NOW, I told Dad I would be there the next morning (Friday) for breakfast which he said he was looking forward to. I even joked that the joke was on him for spending the money to send up Colby's birthday presents because I was bringing them back. We flew all night and made it by Friday morning, and he passed away at 6:15 that evening. We were all there with him and it was very peaceful. He finally looked at peace and wasn't struggling to breathe. Needless to say we're all walking around in shock. But, Dad wouldn't have wanted Colby to miss his birthday, so in a matter of 24 hours we threw together one hell of a party. Everyone had a good time, there were laughs, and of course tears when I gave Colby his present from Poppy. I'm going to miss him very much and the next few days will be the darkest days of my life. I'm soo grateful that Rob is here with me to help us get through it. I probably won't be posting again until the end of the week so for those who choose to leave comments I'm not ignoring you. For those who believe, I would appreciate if you would include us in your prayers this week and we can use all of them.
