Well I finally called and talk to my dad. I've been putting it of since I found out he was in the hospital again. My father and I have never really been close. I have lived with my mom most of my life, and dad was never really around. The past few years or so he has really been trying to make up for it. I didn't want to call because it breaks my heart to hear him talk the way he does. Since his stroke back in July, he just mumbles a lot and its hard to understand him. He mumbles and trails off. He use to keep you on the phone for hours, now I'm lucky if I get a 5 min conversation out of him. Just talking on the phone wears him out.. What I was able to understand in the minute conversation we had today, was that he will be going into surgery today or tomorrow. For what, I don't know. He said he was in a lot of pain.. I don't know what to do, or what to say to him other than "get better" or "take care of yourself" wich at this point just sounds stupid.
