I live in Michigan and my Father lived in Tennessee.... He was diagnosed with a brain tumor in June 2009, he passed January 29,2010 at the age of 48. I feel bad for not being able to see him but I am glad that I was to be with him before he passed at the hospital. Even though my Dad was not able to open his eyes, because of him being in a coma, I felt he knew I was there. One of the nurses told me that my Dad could hear me and to talk to him as if he could talk back to me. When I was able to be alone with him I told him I loved him and he squeezed my hand. His eyes kept moving like he wanted to open his eyes. Throughout the night,there was a tear that would stream down the side of his face. Around 2am, his eyes were open, 10:50am he was pronounced dead.
It hurts at times because I wish we could have spent more time with each other prior to him being diagnosed with cancer, but I know that the Lord knew what was best and I cannot question that. I just will continue to keep praying. I know that my Dad will be with me, in my heart when I walk down the aisle this October.
