Thanks you guys, Its been a very rough couple of days.
I am distracting myself at a show my strainer is at for the weekend and its back to work Sunday morning to continue getting through this. I just cant sit alone for to long.
My sister called today and asked me what type of pendant I wanted for my necklace that will have a pinch of dad's ashes in them so I will have him with me the rest of my life.
I found out a little bit ago that my trainer's husband who was going to go with and support me wont be able to make it to the funeral next Friday. I am 99% sure my amazing supportive god send of a boyfriend will be there to take me and support me and have my best friend go as well. My mom and god mother will be there to. It hit me hard and hurt so bad when he said he couldn't make. Something about knowing he was going to be there made me feel better about it.

I'm still in a fog and its a day my day process.
I want to make a difference somehow...I don't know how but I do.
Just so out of it, angry, sad,lost....everything all at once.

I know this sounds selfish but I cant help feel like I didnt get much with him. Im angry with myself for not sucking up the curage to go see him more then I did and gett o know him first hand.

All 5 of his other kids, my half siblings are much older and grew up with the good and the bad and they say be happy I was adopted and didnt have to be there for the bad times but really....I would take all the bad with all the good and any extra time I could. If I could go back and just spend one more day with him I would do it in a heart beat.

I miss him so much but feel like I maybe shouldnt since I had so little time.

All the kids have been married, had kids and he was their at the weddings, gave my sister away, was at the births of his grand children.....I dont get that. Yes in spirit he will always be there but I dont get to hear him say hes proud of me, or say I love you or anything. I fell like its not fair for me to miss out and I am so happy they all got to have all the years with him.

It just hurts so incredibly much.

That's normal, but you cannot blame yourself because that does nothing to honor his memory.. all it does is make you bitter.

Instead enjoy the time you did spend with him, how he made you feel and embrace it

We are waiting for him to be transferred to the burn center in Seattle. He lives in Everrett about an hour or so away and this is the best burn center in the area I guess.

Very scared, please send some healthy thoughts or at least calming thoughts out way.

Will keep this updated with any news I get.
These are the times when all things pale in comparison.
I understand that all obstacles seem a bit unsurountable right now and that our biggest ears are the many things we do not know. Uncertainty is contagious.

I will say that good always come with bad. It sort of cleanses you and allows you to focus on those things that truly mean something to you. It is simply unfortunate that we have to have a troublesome situation to learn it and oftentimes another situation to remember it

My father died several years ago and I think about him daily, I speak to him daily and am closer to him than I ever was before. It was a gift he left me.

Good really does come out of bed. It will to you as well and probably has already started.

My very,very best to you and your Dad. I'm sure he is a wonderful man
