    Default My dad passed away

    My dad has been sick for quite some time. He most recently had surgery in may to remove cancer from his tongue which resulted in the doctors having to remove his entire tongue, the underside of his mouth and part of his jaw. He had a feeding tube in his stomach and a tracheostomy in his neck so he could breathe. They then removed a piece of bone from his thigh to rebuild his jaw and took grafts of skin to cover the bottom of his mouth. Followed by radiation and chemo. He was living in his home independently, managing his tube feeds and his Trach with only the occasional help of home care nursing visits. Part of our Disney trip coming up in January was to visit with him (he lived in Orlando). Then we got bad news and learned that it would be our last visit with him. But I got a call this morning that he passed away. The situation is not typical at all but I have been very surprised with the amount of support I have gotten... and from unexpected sources.

    I haven't told my son yet - I guess he will find out when he gets home from school and wonders why I'm not at work.

    May peace and comfort be with you now, Dad. You are loved.

    Oh goodness! How tragic....... I'm sorry that you didn't get a chance to visit with him one last time. I hate loss at any time but it seems even worse when it comes this close to Christmas.

    Hugs and prayers!
