I'm not even sure how to start.  My Dad's dead.  He passed away sometime last night.  When I came home a little after 11, I found dried blood on the kitchen floor, and Daddy slumped over on the toilets seat in the upstairs bathroom.  There was blood all over the floor.  He has vericose veins, and they've been an issue lately, he's been bleeding from his ankle. He had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and Mom said they cauterized that vein in his leg.  The EMT said he bled out fairly quickly, and I know he's in Heaven now, with Papa.  The thing is, he had time to get upstairs, and try to treat it himself, he could have called 911.  Or he could have called me to say there was something wrong-I would have called 911 myself and had them come check on him.

I'm still in shock, and I think my Mom is too.  I can't believe he's gone; he drove me nuts sometimes, but he's my Dad, and I love him so much.  Mom's bedridden, and that means it falls to me to take care of all the legal stuff, which I can see is a daunting task, and I'm not sure where to start.  I'm taking things an hour at a time right now, waiting on the cleaning service the police officers recommended to come and deal with the clean up.

I think my cat is traumatized too. She was huddled on the living room floor when I came home, and she's been hovering around me and very clingy.

Oh my God, I am so, so sorry.

thank you. I've got a pretty good support system, so I'm hanging in there.
