I went to get my father yesterday. His surgery was this morning and we had to arrive at the hospital early. I didn't tell him, but I wanted him close, to keep an eye on him. I didn't want him to feel alone. He is having his prostate removed and will be in the hospital a few days. The surgery is six hours long. Wow! I know he will be okay. It is scary to watch your parents get older. He seems so young in so many ways. In no way is he or we ready to not have him around. Think of my dad today. I appreciate it.
