My Dad passed away this morning....

It happened so fast. His breathing became such a struggle in the middle of the night. I called home health nurse to assess him at 6am. His lungs filled with fluid  in just a few hours. 
The ER doctor suspected a pulmonary embolism. 
I'm so thankful for the time I had to be with him the last few months. 
Thank you everyone for your living comments to my previous post. 
 Much love to you all,
Robin

Sorry for your loss, but know that you were a good daughter and had time to spend with him and care for him. I went through the same thing with my Dad and its already been 13 years, but I cherish the time I had to care for him and all the precious moments we had near the end. God's blessings to you and your family!

Julia said...

Dear Robin, I feel for your loss and send you some warm and caring hugs. I lost my dad and not quite 10 months later, I lost my mom. Seeing your love one take their last breath is quite an experience.

I'm glad that he had enjoyed and appreciated your care and presence and that you have been allowed to see your dad show his gratitude to you for the care and love you gave him. Love is never wasted, it's the greatest thing that can change the world and make it better.

You are a caring and loving person, it's plain to see.
You are in my thoughts and prayers for the days ahead.
Warm hugs,
JB

Sandy, Sisters of Season said...

Hi Robin, I came across your blog by chance. Sometimes these things happen by God's hand. I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. I feel by reading your previous posting, there has been some healing that has happened both for you and your Dad. All good. You are an amazing person with so much strength. Know that you were chosen to live the life you have had. You have gained so much from all your hardship and God always restores what is taken from us in his time. Lots of prayer and blessing is sent your way. May this new year be filled with much blessings. Sandy

Thinking of you, Robyn. So sorry for your loss.

Myra said...

May our Savior surround you with His love. Praying for you and your family.

Jeanne Gwin said...

Robyn, when my Dad passed away many years ago I thought for sure my world was going to end. We had just lost Mom 10 months before and although her death was hard, it was not anything like the grief I felt at the loss of my Dad. I didn't have much time to recover from those two losses when we lost Steve's Dad 11 months later. All I can say to you hon, is it does get better but you will have many days of deep sadness. Know we are all here to help you through. I wish I had been online back then. Hugs and comforting prayers for you.

Theresa said...

Robin I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Heritage Hall said...

Robyn dear ~ I so admire your humility and courage ... to keep
going when you are exhausted and in pain takes determination and strong character. What an example
of goodness you were to your Dad
and what a role model for your own Children. You will never regret expressing such great
compassion in your Dad's final
days. Bless you and prayers for
your healing and recovery.

thesimplequiet said...

i'm so terribly sorry, Robin... it's been such a long road....
you've been such a creative inspiration to me, my friend, and now you've inspired me to try to be as giving and forgiving as you...

all my thoughts and prayers ~

penelope said...

So sorry for your loss. Just how lucky you were to have spent this precious time with your father.But also know in your heart your dad was probably feeling so peaceful and blessed to have spent so much time with you in his last days. Remember grieving takes time, and for each of us that time is different. You will know when suddenly a memory that brought pain,sadness and a quick tear to the eye suddenly is peaceful and brings a smile to your face as it warms the heart! Hugs Deb
