in the upcoming weeks, I just wanted you all to know that my Dad is very ill and we fear that he doesn't have that much more time with us. I may be around, but I may not.
If you need me, please PM me. I will get that the quickest.

Sandi, I think about you everyday even though I don't know you very well. I have been through what you are going through, and I know exactly all the emotions that you and your family are feeling. I was only 19 then and it was so, so hard to comprehend for me then. I'm glad that you are getting the time to spend with your dad, it is something that can never be replaced. You and your family take good care of yourselves.

We love you Sandi, we're here for you!! Love, Apryl

I am sorry to post that we lost my Dad to cancer on Friday. He went peacefully at home with all of his family around him. I had no unfinished business with my Dad, he knew every day how much I loved him and he didn't need to suffer any more.
05-02-2004, 01:01 AM
I'm really sorry for your loss. I'm glad that it was peaceful and that he was peaceful. He'll always be with you now.
We love you a lot, take care of yourself. :hugs: Apryl

I am so saddened to hear the news about the loss of your Dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you an dyour family!! Please take Care Sandi!

Even when an event such as this is expected and even though it was a blessing he had a peaceful release, I know its very, very difficult to lose someone who's been there your whole life and who had such a great impact. It must be such a comfort knowing that he left with the knowledge he was loved. Also, thankfully he got to know little Jacob.
Big hug and take care
05-02-2004, 03:39 AM
Sorry to hear it, I'm glad you & your family were able to be there for him during his last days. :grouphug: We're here if you need to talk. I lost my grandmother (who helped raise me) a week after 9/11 to cancer.
05-02-2004, 09:19 AM
Hugs to you Sandi.. you are in my thoughts and prayers today.
05-02-2004, 10:01 AM
I'm thinking of you and your family. Hugs and prayers!
05-02-2004, 03:21 PM
I'm so sorry, Sandi. I am glad he went peacefully, surrounded by the ones he loved. Not many people can say that they have "no unfinished business" with their parents, either, so that is certainly a blessing. And he did get to know Jacob - another blessing.

God Bless you and your family.

I'm thinking about you and your family.
Sandi, I'm very sorry to hear about your dad's passing. I'm a RN and have worked with many cancer patients. It is a blessing that he is now without pain and was surrounded by love and his family when he went. Having lost my own father many years ago I know it will be a long, long time before you feel all is right in the world and you'll think about him everyday. Please give yourself lots of time to grieve, to cry, shout and throw things if that is how you feel. There is nothing wrong with grieving, it is a necessary part of dealing with this emotional event. Best wishes always.

Oh Sandi, I'm so sorry to hear about your father's passing. Just know that we are all thinking about you and are here for you however you need us. We love you Sandi.

Thanks guys...I appreciate your thoughts & prayers. The funeral was beautiful. My brother spoke...it was so touching (made me cry my eyes out). I took a couple of extra days off to be with my mom. Under the circumstances, she is doing pretty good. Spent 2 1/2 hours in her gardens today, so I got my exercise.
I checked the scales today. 296.5. Not a number I am happy about - but the way I have ate for the past 2 weeks, I would have been sure it would be more. I am trying to get back to business. Had some small successes today.
05-05-2004, 12:02 AM
Sandi I am glad to see you here! I am sure you will get back on track and we all understand what a huge amount of emotions you are dealing with. Small successes are great and hopefully they will grow into big successes!
05-05-2004, 02:03 AM
Sorry to here about your Dad Sandi. I know how you feel I lost my Dad a few years back. Glad to hear you gain was minimal and you are getting back on plan.
