I Miss My Dad
by laura pastecki
My dad died a year ago tomorrow. The grief hit me like a ton of bricks today. I watched him in the hospital for almost three months...two in the SICU. We had to make the decision to take him off the ventilator. When we did he passed in about twenty minutes.
I held his hand as he died and stroked his head and kept telling him how much we all loved him. It was heart wrenching. But he was suffering and we knew it was time to let him go. But it didn't make it any easier. I miss him so much my heart hurts. I was lucky to have had him for 49 years of my life. He was an amazing man. He will always be in my heart.
