Dad is still holding on by a thread. Debbie said that after hanging up with me, she and the family would be talking with the doctor about which life saving measures (if any) they want to keep in place. Tough decisions for all.
In a couple hours, we'll be headed out to our two Very Important Appointments on the coast. And then at some point next week, there will no doubt be a long drive to Wisconsin, a funeral, a college farewell to Nathan and the celebration of Sarah's 14th birthday.
Isn't that just what life is, though? It is celebrations, sorrows, joys, tears, saying good bye to the old parts of life and saying hello to the constantly evolving new chapters that are being written every moment.
At this very moment, Dad is in the process of saying both good-bye (to us) and hello (to heaven). He is truly living out what life is.
