It's been a week

Since my dad's been in the hospital. His pneumonia has gotten worse and he's too weak to fight off everything that's going on.

It's really hard to go and visit him. I don't know if he remembers me being there after I've gone. There are times he's lucid and talks a little, but there are more times that he's not there - mentally or his personality.

It's just so hard to see the shell of a man who used to be larger than life - at least in my eyes.

oh honey... i have yet to live thru the same an so don't know what to say. My grandfather had altzheimers and I felt the same way about him. Try to not worry if he knows or not.. just feel the good and the love that YOU know. He's still the same and always will be, it's just an illness that's taking his body. His heart will always be the same.. and with you.
