Just had to add a picture of Kado and his happy smile.
Today THGGM and I checked my dad into hospice care at a somewhat local facility.
After checking him in, we went back to his house to pick up some pictures to put around his room.
He is in such a lovely place! And, the good news is, he is resting comfortably. We saw that for ourselves twice today.
THGGM had been calling each night to ask the nurses at the hospital how he was doing. Tonight when he called, the hospice nurse assured us that he was still resting comfortably.
I don't see how he can last much longer.
Although we are all very sad, we are also very aware that my dad was born with a severely damaged heart. No one knows how he survived infancy. This problem wasn't detected until ten years ago. He underwent major heart surgery to repair his heart, but in seventy-three years, much damage had been done that could not be repaired.
We all hoped for a few good years. God gave him TEN plus. We are all so very thankful.
Please pray for calmness and peace to prevail to the end.
