My reaction to Joffrey’s death.
Monday was one of the hardest days of my life. Doctor’s constantly telling us how bad of shape dad is in, being potentially brain dead when its all said and done. It came down to one live or die surgery, with the doctor telling us if he doesn’t have the surgery he will most certainly die, but there’s a real good chance he won’t make it through it the surgery to begin with, and a good chance that even if he makes it through, he will be in a vegetative state.
Well Doc, I’d like to introduce you to my dad, the toughest son of a bitch around. Because not only did he make it through the surgery and is not a vegetable, but less than 24 hours after, he had been opening his eyes to look around and moving all 4 limbs. Being in EMS, I have a lot of experience with strokes, and no matter what the future holds for him, at this point I don’t see how there could be a better result. No one else would have made it this far, and for that, I am so damn proud to call him Dad.
