If you are one of my "friends" on myspace then you've probably already read this - I'm not feeling very creative right now so I just copied and pasted what I wrote earlier:
Early this morning, my Dad died! He had been sick for some time now so we sort of saw it coming - but things were looking up lately and we expected him to prove the drs all wrong. He has been in and out of the hospital since June when he was diagnosed with liver and kidney cancer. He also has a history of heart disease but hadn't been having any trouble with is heart lately.
Around 3am a nurse helped him to the bathroom and he wanted to sit in his chair for awhile. Sometime shortly after that the alarms all started going off and they found him on the floor with blood coming out of his nose & mouth. They said it was cardiac arrest. That was his 15th heart attack over the past 20 years or so.
This is all so sudden - I just spoke with him briefly last night - I couldn't hear him very well because I was at work so I told him I would call him back and when I did a few hours later he was in dialysis so I never got the chance to talk to him again :(
He along with the rest of my family are in AZ and I am still in NC - so being so far away has been hard - I may try and make another trip out next week for the memorial service - no plans have been made yet - I am thankful that I did get the chance to go and see him last month and sort of say "goodbye"
thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers - please feel free to write or call anytime - being alone is harder than I thought it would be - my little men keep me busy but zac sill has to work and all I want to do is cry - I'm sure it will pass soon but today has been hard.
I had to get out of the house - I couldn't take the toy tornado that had hit and had no desire to pick it up myself so I packed the kids up headed to Burger King for some comfort food - my favorite - a number 1 with cheese minus the tomato and onion :) Then we drove to the park to play - I wanted some more pix of Gryphyn since I didn't get many the last time we were there - I did take more of Vahn as well but I haven't made pages of those yet - so here are a few of my BIG MAN Gryphyn taken today:
