**Please note: As I spend some time helping my beautiful, wonderful Dad to transition, I am taking a couple of weeks off from writing the horoscopes. Britt Martin will write them for next week, and I will be back after that. Thank you all so much for your prayers and light, and for the space that allows me to be fully present for my Father. The Daily Weather will continue as usual…

Well, Maybe not as usual, because this experience of watching my father as he makes his way toward death is unlike any other, and the Truth is, I can’t focus much on anything else at this point. So please, let me share some of what I’m experiencing with you. Many of you know that I nearly died last December, and I thought that was the most profoundly life altering passage ever. And it was, of course, in so many ways. It transformed every iota of my life.

It made me appreciate so much more the fact that I was blessed to have two healthy happy still married parents who loved me as though I was still a child through that illness of mine. When I got back up on my feet, I went to see them way more than ever before, because I was so happy they were there, and boy am I glad I chose to do that.

I was here last month, visiting, and my Dad, who was diagnosed with lung cancer just after his 85th birthday, last March 23rd, 2012, was beginning to show signs of decline. Before I arrived here I s=wrote him a letter, saying everything I wanted to say, because he has been the greatest father anyone could ever ask for, and I didn’t want to leave anything out. I write it and brought it with me.

Dad was still up and around, riding arounf the house on his portable scooter, and he came by during my last day here to say Honey, my days are numbered and I want to say good-bye and tell you how much I love you. He went on and on about what a great daughter I’ve been and how blessed he was to spend a lifetime with me. He said You probably don’t know what I’m talking about and I said I think I do. And he sadi Really? and I said Yes in fact, I wrote you a letter. He was so moved. He read it over and over again and started crying.. We cried together and spent that last day saying goodbye. I told him I would see him again, but he said No.

When I arrived here last Friday, one day earlier than I was scheduled to arrive because my brother called and said don’t wait, he hd been placed in a hospital bed with 24 hour hospice care in the home. He was barely conscious but he recognized me and he said My Stephie… Those were his last coherent words. He is completely unconscious now, without food or water for four days.. The hospice nurse says he has 24 hours probably.

He is comfortable for someone dying of lung cancer and emphysema. Thank God.

I expect that the next time I write this column my wonderful magnificent Dad will have moved on to the next room. I am not afraid. I am grateful for this lifetime with this most wonderful man.

This passage is difficult, but so meaningful. We are all going through something like it, though hopefully not so intensely personally filled with loss.

Thank you for listening, I didn’t know what else to say today.

“We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full.”
– Marcel Proust
