Lets start with Friday. Friday morning at 1:30 I got a call from my dad's girlfriend telling me that he had passed away in his sleep. Wow that was a lot to take in. I have had a rough relationship with my dad in the last few years because his alcoholism got worse and I could not handle it. I knew he had been in the hospital for the last month, I had been keeping tabs on him without him really knowing. I know that he would not have said anything to me, really no one even called me to tell me he was in the hospital until 2 weeks after the fact, but that is besides the point. (I already knew he was there). I still loved him and he was a great dad until the disease took over. Alcoholism is an awful disease and no one should have to live with it. He had cirrosis of the liver and renal failure. He went peacefully in his sleep and he is now in a better place.
So needless to say my week has not been the greatest, but I am making it through. My husband is wonderful and has been great when I start to lose it. I will try to make another blog post about Christmas soon.
I hope everyone had a great holiday.
