112. a picture of you

I was really, seriously not up to anything else tonight.

 

Today was very weird. This morning we got a call that Shaun's Grandma is unwell. We made a plan to go see her after we had our d&d game.

 

The gamers showed up but we hadn't started playing when the phone rang again. I felt a really bad feeling and followed Shaun into the office, but I was thinking of his grandma, and not my Dad.

 

My Dad's heart stopped this morning. They revived him, possibly breaking some ribs in the process. If it stops again, they are not going to restart it.

 

We sent the gamers home and went to the hospital. My dad was awake and mostly coherent. When he saw me he said, "take a picture!"

 

It was just really hard. His heart is too weak. He's awake and alive and coherent and we were basically saying goodbye to him.

 

Basically: UGH.
