The End That Came Far Too Soon
When I started this post I was planning to update everyone on my father’s current condition – pneumonia in one lung with the hope that antibiotics would help fight the infection but sadly, that is not how it happened.
On the morning of May 9th I received a call that would forever change my life – we lost my father.
One Step Forward, One Step Back
The one thing that I have learned during this past 6 weeks is that when there is one step forward there can be a couple steps back.
In early March we learned of my father’s diagnosis of 4th stage lung cancer, and had a precarious week waiting for a pesky tumor to be removed.
Luckily that tumor was removed without any further complications, and he was released from the hospital and was able to go home. Sadly, only about 5 days after his return home he took a fall that lead him right back to the hospital for a couple of days, and into skilled nursing for some rehab.
Everything was proceeding as normal at skilled nursing for about 5 days until I received a call that they were rushing him back to the hospital – they think he had a stroke
