Sorry to hear that. Hopefully your dad recovers soon.Thank you so much @canuck78 for your most kind words. I missed this forum immensely. I'm happy to help anyone that I can.
I lost my mom (she was my best friend too) in unexpected, tragic circumstances (for no apparent medical reason) within 45 minutes. And, needless to say, losing her has affected me and my life tremendously.
My dad has been/continues to be in a critical condition too. These last 1.5 months have been the toughest/most traumatic phase
