Back in 1979, my Father passed away not long after I met Dave, my future husband, and he nor his family never had the chance to meet him! We married that same year and I "inherited" the best father in law in the world who for the last 31 years has been like a father to me. I've never known anyone who had such a best friend father/son relationship as Dave and his Dad! He recently had a heart attack . . . the paramedics brought him back but he was in a coma and could not breath on his own. He especially loved when the whole family could be together so it was just like him to hold on until we could all be gathered at his hospital bedside. He was being kept alive by machines for 3 days which was totally against his wishes. So when his 6 children, their spouses and his grandchildren were all there and said their final goodbyes, he went to heaven peacefully . . . He finally got to meet my Dad and I think they will be good friends.
I believe that I shared with you earlier that my sweet cocker spaniel Maxxie was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. We have been going thru the Please God just let him live thru Thanksgiving . . . Christmas . .. his birthday?? He turned 13 last week! He still has a good appetite and occasionally gets his hippity hoppity happy moments which is a good thing but he's slowing down quickly and sleeps most of the time now. We will know when the "decision" time comes but for now we are blessed with every day he's with us.
