Re: new too dads got it!
I wished someone would have gave me some inclining as to anticipated time for my dad. The more I asked to know, the more everyone would hush. Please spend your time with him. I live 8 hours away from my dad and when he passed away on Feb. 5th... I wished there were times that I had been closer (in geography) to him.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and use this web board. It has helped me countless times for questions, concerns, relief, and support. We are all here for you.
I am 34 years old and if feeling dispair for the loss or potential loss of your parent makes me a baby... then I am a baby. Be strong. I will be thinking of you.
