This is the first time I've been able to come back to the site.
But On September 20th at 3:37pm they pronounced My Hero, My Dad. He gave it his all fighting this beast for 19 months. Many times we thought he wouldn't make it through the night. The ending was so brutally hard until the last twelve hours.
The stomach cancer spread to his espohagus, then his spine then everywhere...but went to his brain diagnosed about 2 months ago. I was so proud to be able to take this difficult journey with him. I hope no one has to go through what we had to.
The last twelve hours of his life was very peaceful he slept comfortably..He was essentially in a drug induced coma.. Pain meds, haldol, and ativan every hour..
I want you all to know how much I appreciate you being with me for this journey. Without you I never could have been so strong when dad needed me to be. I not only lost my dad but my best friend.
God Bless all of you. And If you need anything I will still be here. Just right now life is chaotic. Packing the house and moving back to my hometown where all my family is.
