on Sat night. He has been in and out of the hosp for a year or so with congestive heart failure and last weekend he had fluid IN his lungs also. So breathing wasnt great. They tested him and found his throat wasnt working well. Basically he was aspirating any fluid into his lungs. They hit him with a drug that is normally end of life, and it seemed to work for a day. I was there for a bit Sat, left at 7 as he was falling to sleep, said I would see him tomorrow, got a call about 830P. I had talked to the doc a few days prior and she said this was a one way trip at this point so I had my head wrapped around it.
He grew up on a farm with no power, an outhouse, and running water because the spring was uphill. Plowed with horses when he was to small to pick up the cultivators unless the horses were moving. Was a MP in Okinawa during the Korean war. Went into construction and started his own business. Quit pretty far ahead in the game. He did a lot more in his life than I have and had a good run in 87 years.
I have kept busy moving his stuff out of his place and getting that finalized so there isnt another payment for Jan. This executor stuff is a pain, but it is keeping me busy, which is a good thing. The worst part about it being over the holidays is that no one is open who I need to be and it is going to stretch this out.
It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.
