my dad is having a esophagectomy in less than 8 hours and I am an emotional wreck. I went to see him this afternoon for a few hours and didnt want to leave, all that was going through my mind is what if this is the last time I see him (horrible I know) it has just got all real to me that he may not survive surgery and ive spent the 5 hours since I left his crying.
However I think I may have said something really selfish. when he said hes done everything he wanted to do in life I replied you havent walked me down the aisle, which brought a slight tear to his eye then he said I will have to survive now 'i promise'.
anyway my question is what should I say when I ring him before he goes in, I dont know whether to speak to him like its the last time and tell him how much I love him and that he is truly my hero and I am so proud of how he has dealt with everything.
sorry for any spelling mistakes I havent slept in days and my eyes are so puffy I can hardly see.
