i spent lastnight at the hospital with my dad… he went to a doctor’s appointment yesterday afternoon, and from there was rushed over to mary washington hospital… as soon as my sister told me about it, i jumped in the car and drove down.
my dad’s been going to his doctor(s) a lot lately, trying to find out what was going on with his neck… it’s been bowing down further and further the last couple months to the point where his chin is now almost on his chest… so they’re going to do some neck surgery to try and fix that, which is why he was later transferred up to george washington hospital late last night.
while i was there, he also had a lawyer come by, because he wanted to update his Will… intellectually i understood why he might want to go ahead and do that, but lemme tell ya… really kinda hit me in the gut.
on top of all this, they then tell me that my dad has bone cancer.
both my sisters were there at the hospital by this point, and they both started crying… his wife broke down pretty hard… and i was trying like hell to keep my shit together and be strong for everybody else — wasn’t easy.
not sure if he’s getting the neck surgery done today or what, i’m still waiting to hear what exactly is going on… but i’ll be going up to visit and spend time with my dad either way, since the last thing i want is for him to be sitting up there in a room all by himself right before something like this… took the next few days off, and by boss was totally understanding, which i appreciated.
sorry man, i usually don’t drop personal stuff like this… but damn, after losing my mom a few years back… and now this?!?
so yeah, rough night… and to be honest, it’ll probably get a lot rougher over the next couple weeks… so say a prayer, mang.
