Remembering my Dad
Seems like I just did this for my Mom, Dad went in the hospital last Sunday with his COPD it wasn't that uncommon. My family and I flew to Disney World this past Sunday and Monday afternoon I received a phone call that the doctor took my dad off of the ventilator and dad asked for us all to see him, my brother Larry lives in Clermont FL. We got a flight out of Orlando to Philly and landed past midnight. We all were at the hospital by noon time and the doctor took dad off of the ventilator. After 10 minutes my dad was sitting up talking to everyone with no problem, he was incubated for three days, anyway after six hours of " waiting for dad to die" the doctor ordered more morphine in his drip to let him rest. The doctor said it could be two or three more days I decided to fly back to Orlando and be with my kids in Disney. While we were at the hospital a tornado warning was announced and we had to move away from windows, a tornado touched down approx 20 miles away from Mt Holly New Jersey. I was able to get a flight at 10 pm because the flight was delayed in Chicago for hours, right before push back from the gate it was announced that parts of a bird were found on starboard engine cowling so that was another 30 minute delay. I finally got back to the resort at 2 am. Got phone call this morning Dad died at 905 am on 9/5, his birthday is 9/4 and his anniversary is 9/6. He died three months and one day after Mom whom died at 904 am.
