Heartache sure can come all at once. My Snickers crossed over New Year’s Eve and then my dad several weeks later on my parent’s 60th wedding anniversary. My mom kissed him that morning and they wished each other happy anniversary, and he died that afternoon.
On 9/17, my dad went to Urgent Care with a severe pain in his side. He was transferred from there to a hospital and after tests, it was revealed to him he had 2 different types of lung cancer in his right lung and bone cancer from his neck down to his legs.
He got his 1st round of chemo on 10/31 taking 8 hours, then the next day 3 and then the next day another 3. He turned 80 years old 11/10 and 2 days later after blowing out his candle on the dessert we brought, he was unable to eat or even swallow water. And it went down hill from there, way too quickly.
A week after Snickers crossed, he communicated to me that my dad was coming to heaven really soon. I asked him how soon and he said before 2 weeks from then. And that he’d be the 1st to greet him in heaven with kisses all to his face.
Sweet little Lollipop, during one of the calls for 911 to come to my parent’s home, just whined staring at him until the EMTs left and then I let her climb onto the bed with him. She loves her grandpa too!
My little angel was right, my dad died 1-1/2 weeks later and Snickers greeted him with kisses all over his face just as promised.
My dad and Snickers had a special relationship. Every time my parents would come over or we’d go to their house, he had gone to the grocery store to get him baked or fried chicken to add to his dinner. Lollipop got lucky too from this as when we adopted her, she got in on it.
At my parent’s house, my dad wouldn’t stay with any of us visiting the whole time, he’d grab some cheese and say, “Come on Snickies!” Him and my dad would trot down the long hallway to my dad’s room. One time my dad tried to be sneaky and grabbed the cheese without saying a word and went down the hall. Not to my little boy! Snicks zoomed off the chair chasing my dad down the hall for his cheese and grandpa time!
Dad, I’m glad you’re not suffering as even though you said it so little, you were in tremendous pain and feeling so sick. I’m glad Snickies was the 1st in heaven to greet you and that I see you two hanging out and having fun as you visit with your passed family and friends. Please take care of my little baby boy!
