I got the call

So my mom called last night and asked me to come home. I leave Wednesday morning and I will be gone for 2 weeks.

I am not sure what to expect. I told my mom in no uncertain terms that I am there to spend some time with her and my dad. I am not there to baby sit  Kaily.

The hospital bed should be arriving today, and hospice brought some liquid pain medicine for my dad.

I feel like the long lost daughter who is returning just in time to watch her father die. I guess that is actually right.

My family does not understand why I like living in California, nor do they understand that I have made a good life for myself.

I think I have everything packed and ready to go. I  am sure I will forget something!

Gosh guy's I just feel so numb right now.

Today Rusty and I went down to base and we took our friends out to lunch. I so wanted to be there when they left of Iraq, but I can't. So I figured lunch would have to do.

Skeet. Shooting skeet is where you take a shot gun and shoot clay plate that are flung into the air! I know that is over kill. Lets face it..... you are using a shot gun to shoot a piece of china?! LOL

The smell in the fridge is gone. However I cannot tell you where the smell came from! Now that we have thrown everything out and washed everything down...well the fridge looks empty!

I really need to go get some cleaning done.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I am actually a hospice RN Case Manager, and hopefully if the hospice your dad is with is a good one. If so they will sit you down and explain anything you want to know........and the purpose of hospice is to keep him comfortable and out of pain at home!! Hopefully that is what they are doing.  If you give me your dads diagnosis I will be glad to give you any info about it that you need!! Be Safe! Carrie
