    Default just lost my dad

    Hello everyone,
    I am a regular pg.org poster. One week ago today I received the most horrific call of my life. My mom called to tell me that my dad was being rushed to a nearby town (my parents live in a different town from me) by ambulance. Just a few hours later she called to tell me my dad had died of a massive heart attack. I think my heart went with him. I feel so lost, as my dad was the only person in this world who truly understood me--we were so much alike in character. I am so glad this board is here, although so sorry any of us have had to go through this.

    I am so sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose someone, especially someone that is so close to you. I am here to listen if you need to vent or cry. And again I am sorry for your loss.

    Hi Linda, I remember you from the ttc 7+ board. I wanted to tell you how sorry I am for losing your dad. I know how you are feeling. Its very hard to get a phone call like that and know that no matter what you did to get there, you wouldnt get there in time. I love hearing you say that your dad was the one person who truly understood you.

    I got a call at 2am from my dads nurse at hospice telling me she thought he was ready to pass shortly and that I needed to get there. I stumbled around in a daze as I had taken Tylenol PM that night because I wasnt sleeping the previous nights thinking of him. I had to drive in a mess from Ahwatukee to north Scottdale (45 min). I got to my dad 10 minutes after he passed. It kills to me think how close I was to getting there before he died. He was still warm when I got there. I sat next to him as he laid in his bed for a few hours with my mom and sister. I sat there until he was cold. I remember pushing my hand under his chest to find an area still warm, until that went away, too. Then they insisted they take him.

    Its been since 8/28/02, but its still so hard for me. He wouldnve been the most fun grandpa ever and its such a rip-off to me that he and my son (soon to be 2 kids, I pray) dont get to share that now.

    Im here if you ever want to talk. Dads are wonderful things and fill a place no one else ever can. Im really sorry, Linda.
