Dad

I am pretty sure I have seen my father alive for the last time. 
A bit of history on him. He caught his leg in a PTO shaft while chopping corn with a LA Case. ( you sit above the pto on them) September of 69. At n November of 69 a blood clot caused him to faint/ pass out on the same tractor and he ran off the side of the road and rolled the tractor on top of himself. Broke both of his legs. He was in the hospital for 3 months. 
In November of 72 he lost his right hand. Then in March of 1983, he was riding a colt I had started and somehow ended up under a Cedar tree with all of his ribs broken, a lung punctured, the ball on his left shoulder broken off and his t-1 vertebrae broken. 
Well he ended up in the hospital 2 weeks ago fighting infection with his catheter amongst other things. 
We went up and saw him the 18th, and I don’t think he knew me. We went up again the 23rd. All my siblings were there, we spread out going into see him throughout the day. He was sharp, but he asked each of us if it was ok if he never went home. 
I am okay with it, other than he knows his Creator but not his Savior!!

Lazy...I would respectfully suggest    that your old Dad  has endured so much torture over the years...that   his Savior could well give him   a  break of another kind.....

..Here's  hoping  ..

All the  best  to you...

Mike

It sounds like he is tired, in a lucid moment he asks but to me he is telling, I had a friend two years ago with prostate cancer, he was 3 years younger than me, I'd known him since he was a 13 year old pain in the ass, he put 36 years in Vancouver to my 36 with Burnaby, at the end he said he was tired of the pain and got two doctors to signoff and took the plunge, no more pain and anyone around him was comfortable with his decision, I'm sure you have gone over in your mind many scenarios, but what is important is what your dad thinks/feels, good luck with your going forward.

Nick, your dad sounds like a fine man. 

Persevered some tough times. 

I think the Lord is a loving and forgiving Lord.

I believe, when the time comes for them to meet, they will get along just fine. 

My prayers will include your father, you and your family.

I have a dad that has almost died uncounted times starting with a heart attack at 46 which was 33 years ago, I was 6. Eveytime something happens he loses a little of what he used to be able to do, but he keeps going.  

One day he wont come back home to the farm.  After all of the close calls and always getting better like your dad, it's going to be one tough thing to accept. The strongest, never quit, never give up are the hardest to lose. My sympathies and prayers are with your family, hopefully he can be kept relatively pain free.

My prayers for you and him. Hopefully his creator can help him find his savior. Sounds like he has had a tough life that deserves the forgiveness they can both give him.
