super quick update

Dad turn a turn for the worse with his pain and we all decided it was time for hospice. He's been moved to an in-patient facility (that is beautiful btw) the's between my brother and I. His wife flew and as did his brother and sister in law.

It won't be long.

We included him in all the decision making and he's fine with it. Surprisingly fine with it. He knows that he's going to die and he's "cool with that"...yes, that's a quote. I feel deep sadness but at the same time incredible relieve that he's accepted this. We are all finding comfort in eachother as we walk these final steps with him.

I did, however, make sure he knew that I expected him to do some friendly haunting of the kids. I reminded him that both Mom and Peter's mom teamed up and looked in on the kids after they passed, so they'd know how to do it. :)

Thank you for your continued love, support and prayers. I promise you, they are being felt!!!

I have no doubt that I will be fine through this. Wanna know why?? Cuz I have the FREAKING. BEST. FAMILY. AND. FRIENDS. A. GIRL. CAN. HAVE!!!

I love you people!

Michelle, you, Noah, and the rest of your family are in my thoughts and prayers!

I hope he passes peacefully. Hospice is a pretty great thing and I hope they are able to help with the process.

Let me know if there is anything I can do.

I'm glad that he has accepted it. I'm sure that your mom has been "haunting" him, to help him get used to the idea.
I know it's hard to say goodbye, but that poem will help you through!
I love you, my sister!
