February 16, 2007

is the day my daddy passed away. He thought he might have pneumonia, but was waiting for his Friday morning doctor’s appointment to go in. He hated hospitals and wanted to go where people had his files and knew his medical history. When he stepped out of the car in the doctor’s parking lot, he collapsed. CPR was performed by the doctor, and he was taken to the hospital by ambulance, but all was without success. We’ve since found out, via the death certificate, that he had a “pulmonary something-or-other-emboli” with “something-or-other-coagulation” and “metastatic malignancy with primary unknown”. In other words, from what we understand…he had a blood clot in the artery between his lung and his heart (hence the shortness of breath) and blood that was likely to clot, along with cancer throughout his body that they don’t know where it began.

We had no idea that he had cancer. He had no idea he had cancer. I praise my God for that blood clot, because if he wouldn’t have had it, he would have suffered tremendously over the next six months or less. Now he is resting in the arms of our Savior, and he didn’t have to go through all of that horrid pain and suffering. It was his time to go home.

The funeral proceedings begin tomorrow. There will be two visitation times tomorrow, then the funeral on Friday.

I miss my daddy.

Feeling Better

Just in case you all were wondering. Last week is one of those weeks that should really be erased. But it can’t, so I will attempt to learn from it and move on.

I’m reading Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. I love Joyce. (Check out her link down somewhere on my side bar) I’ve been reading BOTM off and on for a long time now. But, I really needed to read it and get busy putting it into action. Sometimes, we just get so overwhelmed with stuff, we forget how we are supposed to act. Hopefully, with the Lord’s help, I will remember.
