On the road...

American Kestrel - highly cropped

It was a good day at work and since I saw an Egret the last few days at a local pond, I stopped by to see if he/she was still there.. Nope but this lovely Kestrel was there in a far off tree...

I've been struggling on the decision to see my dad one more time as seeing him last time was pretty hard. After seeing the beauty of this bird, I knew my answer. see my dad. even if I didn't know if he knew I was there - what if he did?

The human body wasn't designed to go without food and water for very long. Seeing my dad - so thin, droopy skin, shallow breathing, body temperature going up some more and...  This was the first time I cried by my dads bedside. A shell of a man that is my father...

All the doctors say it's a matter of when...likely before the weekend is up but... So nothing is really planned besides work tomorrow, hopefully seeing my dad again - maybe with a smile.. I still hold out hope.. I can't thank everyone on blip enough for the support given to me.
