I love posting beautiful photos on this page, today, I can’t think of a more beautiful photo than this...
I got the call again this morning to rush to hospital, this was the most serious call of my life. Dad’s cat scan had come in and there was something very wrong. I raced there and ran to his bed. He didn’t look great and it wouldn’t be long til he went in for emergency surgery. The doctors waited for the rest of my family to come in and I said what I thought could be my last “I love you mate” to him... they took him in.
The doctor came out just after the wheeled dad in and told us the what was happening. He said that there was a possibility that what was happening inside his stomach could be terminal and that this could be the last time we’d see dad... The next 5 hours of my life were the toughest so far as we waited to hear what had happened . We thought that the longer the better because if it was bad they’d know straight away.... we waited. We drank coffee... we played crosswords and spoke about dad.
I comforted my brothers, sister, my mum and my Nonna... and we waited.
Then we received the best call I could imagine!
We had the best outcome possible in the situation. Dad is still not out of the woods, we know that, but today was not the day.
Massive thanks to everyone at Monash who gifted us more moments with dad today, you’re all legends.
I already treasure every moment and every chat I have with my dad, he is my best mate, I can tell you that I’ll treasure them even more now.
This photo is of dad in the ICU after the surgery. I told him I was taking his photo and he said, “Of course you are, I’m famous!” He thinks he is so funny.
Treasure your moments, call your dad and your mum and any loved one who you can.
I thought I might have said my last “I love you” this morning, but what do we say to the god of death? NOT TODAY!
