Tuesday Update

 Hi friends, I just got home a short while ago and am exhausted but the visit tonight went pretty well.My brother picked me up after a boring and uneventful day at work.I felt a little nervous on the ride there, when I saw my dad it was shocking to see how much weight he had lost.His skin also had a yellowish tint, think it was jaundice from his liver being so sick.We talked and it was ok, he told me that this Thursday he goes in for another doctor's appt, I myself though judging from his appearance tonight do'nt think he has much time left, maybe a couple of months, but then again, it's hard to say.I made my peace with him and I feel good about that.I feel free knowing that I did the right thing and he knows I have forgiven him , I hope you all have a good hump day, back to work for me tommorow, thanks for all your prayers and well -wishes, I felt them today, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

I'm glad you made peace with him.  I don't think he has much time left at all if he is showing signs of jaundice.  My dad looked all yellow the week he died.  Take care and have a good Wednesday.

I'm so glad everything went ok for you.  He knows he is dying and he was probably happy you wanted to see him.  Some people get very reflective and sentimental when they know the end is near and I'm glad that you could get the chance to make good with him.  It is good for you and him.  Hope you have a happy today and tomorrow.  Luv ya!

Boy, I sure was behind! I'm glad your visit went good.  Did you see his wife at all? I think making peace is important, I do had that same peace/closure with my MIL before she passed on.
I am glad that bitchy beast is gone. I told you she would be out by summer! Good, lets just hope we don't see her out and about.
I love street fairs to, and also like the smaller things that don't hang on walls.  I use to go to them all the time.  With kids it gets a bit busy to do that now.
Love you
Ang
I'm always happy to help you out on ebay :)

... I am glad and proud of you Lisa ... there aren't too many times you will get to say you did the right thing, but to make peace with your father was the right thing to do ... and the most important ... don't let what anyone says to you affect what you shared with your father ... ignore it, and know you did what your heart led you to do ...

I'm so glad you were the bigger person and went to make peace with him whether he changes in what time he has left doesn't really matter at least when he dies you will know that you did all you could to be closer to him regardless of how he has treated you all your life.
Glad this day is over for you because I know you were stressing.
Sorry I been missing my comp had some problems and today is the first time I've been on all week.
Take care and Hugs, Chrissie
