The Living Force
Yes, lessons... I understand that much, not in the kind of what kind of, though. Add: Or perhaps yes, when I dwell in them.Hi, hope you're doing well and can face the situation
In my view, it's lessons till the end and nothing more...
Your aunt seems right here, if you are aware of this fact you can consciously accompany him.
I'm living alone with my mother (aged 82), no one else but me will face her last days in this world and this thread is more than helpful to be prepared for those... Thank you ALL
We agreed as family not to take it to an hospital for several reasons, doctor said that either place was good (treatment in the hospital or at home)... I had been thinking about it... Perhaps for him or for us, it would be much easier the passing days... Due Covid protocols, nor family members can be with him, he would be mostly sedated but alone and, certainly we do not want that for him, and he wouldn't want it either.
At home, my father can perceive, feel, see - although blurred- family who loves him. He loves when his 6 year old granson gives him the blessing with a little prayer at night. Had told my nephew - I know he is hurting also seeing him like that, sometimes my nephew do not want to approach, I encourage my nephew to great him with a bright smile, grandfather loves when grandson is happy, then my nephew gives my father a big hugh. Those little momentos would not have it at the hospital.
So, every day is an opportunity and lessons.
That you very much Olivierlejardinier for your post.
SevenFeathers, thank you very much as well, had read it. Will replay later.If he wants to leave, but is still hanging on, it's important that you just be with him, to listen and touch as possible. There may be something he hasn't said yet, or someone he still wants to say "goodbye" to. If you are there listening, you may be able to help him in some way. But as for prayers, why not just say a loving prayer, for your dad's highest good (not in your opinion, but whatever his soul says it is). I know it is painful to see him in this situation, but dealing with it may be part of YOUR lessons, who knows?
Love and hugs to you all.
