Day 8 with Dad (Wednesday, April 24, 2013)

We are growing wearier from our vigil in that small room.  Uncle told me I missed out on the harpist who came in and played for Dad earlier today, he said it was really beautiful.  I was glad for that.

We take breaks, we eat, we hydrate, but none of it seems enough.  We can’t hold out for much longer.  My uncle said I might just be in this for the long haul.  I nodded in agreement and said, “That very well could be.”

We’re already all so beyond exhaustion…

About Resilient Heart

TBI x3, that's me! If you had a Traumatic Brain Injury (or Injuries!) and knew you might not remember dates, events, people, etc., would you live each day differently? Would you give more, forgive more, heal more? I am. The statistics for me developing Dementia or Alzheimer's is a high possibility - one, because of the TBIs, and two - because I'm genetically predisposed. Come with me as this present moment is all we know we have... Wishing you all the best - today & always. Blessings, Love & Peace, RH

  1. Probably the hardest thing: doing it all when exhausted. Tempers flare and the unimportant become huge problems.

  2. This might be off the wall but has anyone told him it’s okay to go? Forgive me if that seems insensitive. xo

  3. The folks at Hospice were SO GOOD at leading, guiding and directing us in this process.

    I have never been a person to say, “good-bye”, I was always part of the “see you later” crowd, but boy, did I learn fast! Not a bad idea to take into our daily lives, perhaps, as we never know when we or our loved one may pass away.
