It's been a long few days

I traveled for work three days this week, instead of staying in a hotel for two nights.  I was back and forth about staying over and decided to travel instead.

My dad ended up having a bad fall, and broke two ribs two days ago.  He was at the hospital for a few hours and they sent him home. I've been home in the evening, and helped him get ready for bed... Today, his RT stopped by and the decison was made to send him back to the hospital (  he has COPD and could hardly get his breath with the O2 on). It has not been easy watching him struggle to breath,  and he's in the right place now. My mother is tired, and so am I. I didn't go to work tonight ( they know the scoop), I've been with my mother since 10 this morning. Dad's DNR papers are in order, and the hospital has my number to call if needed tonight ( I'll be the chauffeur to my mother).

The dog has been crazy the past few days, not leaving my dad's side and trying to help him/us with walking him etc... ( Dog's know when stuff is happening I do believe)...

I'm off to bed shortly, as I'm played out...

Sam,
Sorry to hear the news about your Dad, he is really having a rough go of it. Funny how dogs do know what is going on.
Hopefully you and your Mom can get some much needed rest and your Dad will be home soon.
Take care.

Awwww Sam I'm so sorry. Thank goodness he went back into the hospital though he'd probably rather be at home. It's hard to know what to hope for at this time so my thoughts are about you and your mom taking good care of yourselves so you can be at your best when spending time with you dad.
