Portrait - Dad at home
I'd exhausted all of my vacation and personal time this past June, so that I could be with Dad and support Mom. I'm so thankful that I was able to take a leave from work when Dad was hospitalized a second time in August. A few times, I'd wondered whether or not I was making the right decision. Should I be at work? How much time did Dad have? How much time did I have with Dad?
I definitely made the right decision. Making sure to relieve Mom from her night shift, I will always treasure the time I spent 'in the now' with Dad in the hospital and then at home where he died so peacefully.
It was the most sacred and holiest moment I'd ever witnessed in my entire life. I'm glad Dad got his wish.
