Dad passed away last week. It is so weird to me being under 50 and already not having a Mom or Dad anymore. Feel a little orphaned. Still have to deal with the financial implications of all of this...I still have not slept much in the last 4 weeks worrying about
how we will get things paid for and what forms need to be filled out. Frankly, I have been robbed of the chance to grieve because I spend my time taking care of bills and forms and stuff...
PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE....for the sake of your kids take care of pre-planning (get a will, living will, POA,and Health Care proxy), put your kids names on your checking accounts, if you are low on finances-put what you do have in your kids names very far in advance if possible, pre-plan your funeral and make your wishes known. If you're the kid, talk to your parents and get these things done. It may be a hard conversation, but it is so much harder to play catch up and not cry over the man you lost but over the bills you have to deal with.
Now I am having pain starting at my TI area (where my resect was) just when I was starting to feel better from the hernia issues. I need to get away!!!!!!!!!!
