Father In Law
May 11, 2009 § 5 Comments
My kids will never get to meet their other grandfather. He is dying. He is comatose with very low blood pressure, and is somehow, still bleeding internally. The home that he lived in (which is the North Dakota Soldier’s home) was administering all of him meds at the same time, rather than spacing the dosages out. When they scoped him, the found whole pills, that they could still identify. That is what may have caused all the ulcers. He had one good day and then was vomitting blood and became unresponsive. He is getting blood transfusions, and is on dopamine, but there are no heroic efforts. They are not transferring him to the “main” hospital in Fargo.
So this is the end. Rest in Peace.
My husband doesn’t want to be there. Not even a little bit. I just hope that he makes it to see his father alive. His sister is picking him up at the airport and is even letting him use one of her cars, so we don’t have to spend a mint on a rental. Believe it or not, the airport sold out of rental cars. So, Deb has been a real blessing.
The hubby just wants me there. And I wish there was someway I could have gone. But the kitchen remodel starts tomorrow. And the kids are too much for Mom and Dad to handle for 3 days. We have to work up to that.
So I am home alone, with 2 kids, and three dogs….and I am sad. I know that this is hurting the hubby more than he is showing. I am sad because my kids will never meet him. I sad that I can’t be there for my hubby when he needs me. I am sad that the hubby is only spending 3 days out there. His father may linger. And I know that he won’t go back for the funeral.
Crappy monday….and I am out of coffee.
