My brother and I went to the game, after speaking w/dad nurse who said go, he'll be fine for a cpl days at least, maybe cpl weeks.
As soon as we got to our seats, got the phone call he was rushed to ICU, pressure bottomed and H&H too. They transfused 2 more units in ICU.
My brother and I ran out down the stadium ramps, flagged down a cop and had a police escort form stadium to our car a mile and a half away. From where we were, my dad was another 2 hours away.
We made it though. He passed away at 4:15am.
I guess his tumor hemorrhaged, massively. He struggled towards the end which was so hard to see. I just felt so helpless for him. But ultimately we were by his side as we said goodbye.
He was diagnosed 8/19/11 and died 1/15/12.
Now we know why he could eat better the past couple of days.
I am a mess.
