I apologize for being M.I.A.  I was away from January 4-9th in Puerto Vallarta, Mx.  Our first trip without the baby.  I will elaborate on how that went later.

While away, actually, the morning of day 2 of our trip, we were given bad news; my sister called to let us know my Father had passed away.  He passed away on Friday, January 6, 2012.  I knew the words that were going to come out of her mouth when I called her back because my Dad came to me in my dream early that morning.  In the dream he looked better, sounded better & happier.  He said to me, “Now I can hold my baby!” while reaching his arms out.  I responded, “Daddy! Your skin looks great. What did you do?”  That was the end of the dream.  For the last month or so he has been too ill to watch my daughter.  Before we left for the trip, he kept saying “Next week I will be able to hold you.” to my daughter.  Unfortunately, He will not be able to anymore.  I’m sure he is watching over us, and is the best guardian angel for her.

I’m happy my Dad came to let me know he’s doing okay & feeling better.  I will miss him.  I’m happy he was able to receive 9 months of joy out of my daughter.  I will make sure she knows how much her grand dad loved & spoiled her.  

I’m still in disbelief.  It feels like he is at another one of his hospital stays.  It just doesn’t feel real… yet.
