When I got home, I went out to dinner with my father and brother and spent the following day with my dad. The next morning he complained of chest pain and we took him to the emergency room. He got progressively worse over the next four days in the hospital. Unfortunately, my father hasn’t been in great health. At 81, he has diabetes and renal failure in addition to a very bad heart.
Needless to say, we’re delaying the start of our trip and spending more time with my dad.
