I went to spend Easter Week with my Parents in south Texas. 2 days prior to my departure my father ended up having emergency surgery. Needless to say I left for Texas right away on Wed. April 4Th. (was supposed to leave on Sat.) Because of weather I missed my connecting flight out of Huston so, I got to McAllen early Thursday afternoon. Things were looking good he got moved out of ICU early Thurs evening.later thursday night I got a call from the hospital that he stopped breathing during the night, and got moved back to ICU. All in all he was in very good spirits. Friday night he had a heart attack. I'm sad to say he never regained consciousness and was placed on a ventilator.
I had to leave to come back to NH on Sat the 14th there was no change in his condition. The neurologist did some tests yesturday and found sever brain damage. In accordance with his living will he has been taken off of all life support tonite.
I found when I went to his house that he stocked up on turning supplies for us to use during my stay.
We both have gotten into turning in the last couple of years but never turned together. I really feel like I've missed some good bonding time with dad. Sorry for the long post but I needed to tell someone.
If you have a chance to do what I missed out on please dont wait.
