Christopher's visit

Dad, Christopher and Sue

Dad was pretty tired from practicing with his breathing valve yesterday. They waited to put the valve on until just before Chris arrived. We all knew going into it that this may be the last time he sees our Dad, but of course we pray it's not. We raised $325 to pay for this emotional 2 hour visit. He was accompanied by two very polite armed guards.

Dad's final words to Chris was to "Be good and take care of your Mom." Then before he asked to be put back on the ventilator he said, "Goodbye Christopher." That pretty much killed us all.

A special thank you to all who gave donations to make this visit happen!

  1. I just finished reading all the posts. You, your family, and esp your Dad have been in my thoughts and prayers. I'm SO GLAD that Chris got to come see him. What a blessing for all of you. I will continue to check the blog for more news, and I'd love to chat w/you sometime soon. We're all here for you & will do whatever we can to help out. Prayers, prayers, and more prayers, Kristin
