Well, Dad is back in the hospital again. He has gone downhill pretty fast in the last few days. I think he has given up and is ready to go home- to his eternal home. He doesn't want to eat, take medicine, or move much at all. He is tired of all this and I think his body is too. We were trying to get him set up with hospice this weekend, but with the holiday, they won't do anything until Monday. We thought it might expedite the process if the hospital were to arrange things for us. I think that Dad is in his final days now. It's hard to let him go, but it's what we have to do now. We went as a family and made some final arrangements yesterday. That was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. How do you stand in a room with your Dad and pick out a casket for him to be buried in? Please pray for peace and comfort- we need so much of both right now.
My brother leaves tomorrow for a few days and I'm still planning on going to Arkansas this week with Josh. Please pray that Dad holds on until both of us are back in NM. I can't imagine Mom being home by herself when Dad passes. Thank you all for your love and support.
