Family emergency - will check in when I can.

My father had a massive heart attack last night. At first they didn't expect him to make it through the night, but now they're thinking he could hold on for a week or more. I'm flying to Portland this morning to be with family.

I'm not close with him, so I'm doing okay, but am going more to support his wife and my brother, and to help with any decision making that needs to happen. He retired 2 weeks ago and just moved to Oregon. He was living less than an hour away, so this is a bit of a shock. We have a very strained, almost non-existent relationship, so please send good thoughts that I'll be able to put some of that aside in his final hours. (Maybe that sounds selfish--not sure, but that's how I feel.)

I may have a lot of downtime to check in, or it may be hectic. I really have no idea how this is going to play out. Thanks, BUDDDs!

Good luck Dawn. I know how you are feeling - I had a similar relationship with my father. Regardless of what those feelings are, it will be a highly emotional time so hang in there.

Oh hun, I'm so sorry you & your family are going through this. It can be a lot more difficult when you have a tumultuous relationship, the emotions can be so much more complicated. Just be gentle with yourself, ok? XOXO You will be in my thoughts and prayers!!!

Dawn, I have a similar relationship with my father, but regardless, this is a rough, rough situation. Be good to yourself, and I hope things go as well as they possibly can.

I know exactly how you feel as I have the same type of "non-relationship" with my father. The fact you are going in the first place is a very positive thing. Just hang in there and know that making the decision you have done (to be with him and your family atm) is one that you will be thankful you have made in years to come. Stay strong and positive. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Thank you all for the good thoughts. Things are looking a little more hopeful. They induced hypothermia for eighteen hours and then started warming him back up last night. The nurse just tried to wake him and he opened one eye and looked at her before he fell back unconscious. They are taking this as a good sign.

We were told Friday to come say goodbyes, and now there's some indication that he might make it.

Thanks Jenny. As an aside, we went to Voodoo donuts for breakfast. That was an experience.
