Heading To Seattle

Today my sis and I head up to the Seattle area to stay with our Dad before he heads into surgery.  5:30 am check-in time.  (ugh).

I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about all of this. 

Due to a very sad circumstance our Dad is back in our lives.  I feel individually we all have issues to resolve and I was anticipating some really good conversations when the shock of his wife's passing had subsided a bit.  And now this.  Now he's having the same procedure that his wife was undergoing when she was "lost" on the table.  His mental space isn't in the strongest place.  I don't blame him.

Can we give him a strong will to live?  Can I help him understand that he needs to stick around because we have a lot to catch up on and a lot of memories to create.  He has grandchildren that he needs to know, they are wonderful people, he should hang out with them.   My dad has a lot to offer as well.  From what I remember, he can be pretty cool.

I'm a bit numb.  I'm trying to stay in the moment and be positive. I have a fantastic family.  I'm very blessed.

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
