Thanks for the condolences..

It was kinda sudden, but his body was an unmaintained house..
So it wasn't totally unexpected.

Around Easter, he was hospitalized after slipping into a diabetic coma.
While in the hospital they found signs of kidney failure.

So.. when he got home, he was bedridden with a catheter.
And that lead to a urinary/kidney infection...
...that lead to septic shock of the blood.
It was too much for his body to fight; even with anitibiotics...

The autopsy showed that his colon cancer had returned as well..
And the COPD had gotten so bad, he would've needed to live with a mask if he fought off the infection..
..and a home dialysis machine for his kidney.
I guess it was time for his train to deport...

I don't know who I'm going to call after Lions games now..

Sorry to hear it T-Wrex; condolences to you and the family. Its not easy

I lost my dad this January. He was a heavy smoker (2 packs a day) for the last 30+ years and his heart gave out. Dad was on oxygen all the time and couldn't do much without becoming out of breath. He never did quit; smoked on his last day. My uncle stopped by to see him on a Saturday afternoon and urged him to go to the hospital cause he wasn't feeling well; dad refused. Uncle went back to check on him Sunday afternoon and he had passed in his sleep. I think he was just tired of the pain and was simply done w/ it all. I take comfort that he's no longer suffering, but it still hurts like a mutha

It's been horrible; I'm at the stage now where people are coming after me for money they feel owed. I'm an only child and he wasn't married, so it's all on me. He also wasn't wealthy so I don't know what they want me to do. With no will, I've just begun the estate probate process. Death brings out the absolute worst in people; haven't even had much of a chance to mourn thanks to these people.

Hang in there; it gets better but there'll be days where your heart aches like it's day one again. To this day I still want to pick up the phone and call him all the time. We had big plans for him to come visit a week this fall and we were going to see a Cowboys game. This is gonna be a rough season

Thoughts are with you.

Watching the men in my family drop like flies or just being in constant pain by their 50s has been quite a wake up call for me. Look at me go to the doctor and do pushups.

I will still have dreams of my uncle actually just being in a coma and waking up. Those are tough mornings.

The men in my family don't last very long either. Only my grandfather lived into his 60's and he passed away at the age of 63. I also know what it's like to inherit debt, but in some ways it seems better than the alternative. I can only imagine how lousy it would be for a family to argue or fight over estates.

It does get easier as time goes by, save for those random waves of sorrow and grief that pop up around birthdays and holidays. I think that's probably forever. But hold onto those good memories as much as you can and they'll give you a reason to smile when you need it.

Stay up, fellas.

Damn it. Condolences Wrex and Anomaly and anyone who lost a parent, especially if it was "before their time was ripe".

My father passed this year as well, in February, at 58 years of age. And only now, when it is too late, do i understand the significance of and how important it is to "Honor thy father and thy mother".
