Today was probably one of the craziest days of my life. It started with a phone call at 1:30am and a series of heavy emotions that followed — sadness, fear, anger, wonder, nervousness, denial. Dad was ambulanced to the ER for heavy bleeding — he lost quite a bit of blood and had to undergo a blood transfusion. Questions are still unanswered and the cause of the bleeding is left a question mark — testing begins tomorrow I was told. I am thankful though; thankful he is alive, alert, communicating and strong enough to say “Go home and get some rest, I’ll see you tomorrow. I love you.” To me, he looked incredibly strong compared to his frail state just hours before. He’s amazing. I continue to worry, pray, hope and wonder. I hope to know more tomorrow and am hopeful that they will soon fix my Dad.
“Hang in there Dad – we love you…”
