I am going to see my father.

It is important to me because, besides being my father, he had fallen on some hard times and bad decisions, while loosing some of his friends and surrounding himself with people not looking at his best interest. Granted the choices he made were his own, it wasn’t the right time for myself to step in and help. Now is that time.

He was admitted to the hospital with Pancreatitus and soon was in the ICU in critical condition, where I had to make the best choice for him and have him incubated into a coma, where they found many different things going wrong with his liver, kidneys, and gallbladder. He ran an average temperature of 103 for almost a month straight till he had his gallbladder removed and over 7 liters of fluid from his abdomen.

It is going to be a long process and I should be spending as much time as I can out there supporting him.

I am trying to find a balance of helping my father and being around with my Wife and 2 kids for the holidays. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
