Our Last Summer Together... Love You Dad

Every Second, Every Minute, Every Hour Became a Memory.

Where have I been all Summer, you might ask? Well, it has been an unplanned Summer trip to My Parents Home. While My Husband stayed at our house with our Fur Babies, My Kids and I spent the Summer at My Parents house.

I was working a shift at Target, on a Friday Memorial weekend, when I received a call from My Family. My Dad was in the Doctor's Office and  had been diagnosed with Stage 4 Type B Pancreatic Cancer. My world as I knew it, Stopped right there and then. I had no feeling running through my body, but shock. As soon as my shift ended, we packed our bags and made a six hour drive to be by My Dad's side (literally). My Dad's days to follow were filled with pain. On Tuesday, I called the ambulance and was immediately admitted to the hospital. Between the ICU and the fifth floor, we were there a week. He did not want to be a burden on my Mom and wished to be sent to a Nursing Home. That morning when My Dad was to be discharged, I was heading out to go sign contracts for the Nursing Home. As I head back to his room, to let him know what I needed to do, his WISHES had changed. He asked me what I thought, if He went HOME, instead of transferring to the Nursing Home. Without hesitation, I called the Director of the Facility and let her know Our Plans had changed. At that moment, I felt a HUGE relief. I was bringing My Dad... HOME.

The First Week of My Dad being Home, it seemed with his Pain Meds, he was still My Dad. But, the Second and Third Week I felt My Dad was Slipping away because of his Pain and all of the Medications for all sort of complications, he was having. But, I did try to make the best of times on the first week. He made me Laugh. My Dad was with Us for one month and a couple of days after being diagnosed. His  Funeral Sevices were nice. Family and Friends I had not seen in many years (due to moving alot- Military Spouse) came to give their respects.

Since then, I spent the rest of the time with My Mom until a couple of days ago. I came home to pack up our house. We made the decision since My Mom needs help getting around, My Kids and I are moving in with her. I will not be posting for about a couple of weeks due to our Move.

I wanted to share with you All, some pics of a Project I made this weekend.
