He was told 2-4 months to live. That was just the day after Thanksgiving. He died this past Saturday. I am thankful it was a quick and (thanks to hospice and morphine) a peaceful, painless passing.
Now to get use to the "new normal". I no longer have a reason to return to my hometown. It was very hard to drive away. I won't be picking up the phone on Sundays to call him.
Life is difficult.

I am so sorry to hear. Fathers play such a big part in our lives. It gets easier but even after 5 years there are days when the loss still feels very strong.

You're right...some parts of life are very difficult--but try to be comforted by the fact that your dad had hospice care and was not in pain at the end . I know your Sunday night phone calls will be missed....why not try to sit and write him a note on Sunday evenings? I used to do that after my husband died and it helped to just sit and write down the "news" and things I would have loved to have told him in person. Somehow, it was comforting. Take care and know we are all keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. It's been a little over two years since I lost my Dad in similar circumstances. He started Hospice care on a Monday and died the following Sunday. We thought for sure he would have 2-3 months. The Hospice nurses took such good care of him (and us). I'm sending lots of hugs and prayers your way.

First I want you to know that I feel your pain. When I lost my beloved Mom and best friend I also had to create a new normal. No more calling Mom every day or taking her to the doc several times a week. The sadness never completely goes away but it becomes more infrequent over time. Someone once told me that grief is like waves. It comes in and goes out. Yes - that is what it was like for me. The waves eventually become bearable and less often. Missing our loved ones is so hard. ((((hugs))))

So sorry for your loss. I had lost my dad a few years ago and both my grandparents recently. It is difficult. I will pray for you.

Life is difficult.
You're exactly right. Life is difficult, but it's also very precious. You have a new reason to treasure every day knowing how difficult Saying goodbye is. When you get the urge to call your dad comfort yourself with knowing how fortunate you were to have home in your life and call someone who needs comfort. Use your new understanding of grief to reach out to others who also grieve.

So sorry to read about your father's passing. The same thing happened with my mother almost 9 years ago. She was diagnosed on December 5 with cancer. Entered a local hospice facility on December 6 and died on December 12.

My father died on Thanksgiving day in 2009. He was buried on December 12.

Hugs to you.
