I have some sad news to share, my dad passed away today after a long illness. He has been going downhill for about a year now, as he has copd and emphazema (sp?) We just knew it was a matter of time. Last week my mom found him unconcious on the living room floor, so we took him to the hospital, and he had pneumonia. so they put him on a ventilator for awhile and it didn't work. They wanted to do a traciostomy but he refused it. So they made him comfortable with morphene, and he just went to sleep. So he died peacefully just like he wanted. But am I weird because i feel relieved and at peace for the first time in over a year??? Its spooky...
