I looked forward to today like any other Father’s Day this year.
But this year, its a little different.
My dad is in the hospital.
He has never spent a Father’s Day anywhere else but with family.
This year, we would be going to spend time with him at the speicalty hospital.
He won’t be able to have fancy dinner with us. He would be eating from his feeding tube,
He won’t be able to try on the new stuff we got for him because he would be confined to the bed with different tubes plugged to his body.
That is why this Father’s day is so difficult.
It’s hard to fathom the man who would take me to school everyday, who would attend all the PTA meetings, the one who would take me to do my hair, the one who would take me to country club and allow me to climb all the trees and pick apples, the one who would take me to the office and allow me to play with the electronic calculator and write on all the notepads till I got bored. The list is endless mehnnnnnn.
It’s hard to fathom that he would be laying helpless in a hospital bed.
This is hard.
But regardless of how hard it is, I am hopeful that he is still alive. He may not be able to speak, but he would grimace and nod in response to our suggested speech.
I love him.
I wish him and all other father’s out there a Happy Father’s Day!!!!
