One of these days...

which way
One of these days, my dad is going to die. It might even be soon.

He could have bled to death tonight. You never know how tenuous life is until all of a sudden you are covered in someone else's blood, holding pressure on a wound that just won't stop bleeding.

At least the ER was fast.

that's terrible! what a scarey thing to have happen.

when my dad was hit by that bus, i suddenly realized that he wasn't always going to be alive--that any day i could very well lose him.

and like this evening for you, that, too, was a sobering thought.

Oh gosh, I hope he's all right! It's so scary to realize your parents are mortal after all. My mom's on blood thinners and everytime she gets a cut I get terrified.

Big hugs to you.

thanks...yeah, those blood thinners are overboard sometimes.

I think that might have actually been most of the problem last night.

You live close to the hospital so that is good.

*hugs*

Mortality is something I never like to think about. It is a hundred times worse when you put it together with someone you love. Not to mention when you get reminders of it .

yes, close to hospital good...stubborn dad who doesn't want to go, bad.

thanks, sweetie...
