    Dad

    We were never close, I always thought he was disappointed with me. I moved north, made a bunch of kids then moved back near him after he had a bout with cancer.. He moved away, the winter weather was bad. Now he visits when there's a kids birthday, and that's all.

    My boy's birthday is tomorrow, so I called him two days ago, are you going to stop by?

    Yes, he said, then told me he spent 3 days in the hospital last week because of blood tests, he said it twice so he's scared the cancer is back.

    I was caught off guard.

    We'll work it out.

      Send him a hooker. Didn't work for my dad, but I'm convinced the logic is sound. Should work better for yours.

          Hope it's not bad. The treatments available for cancer are so much better now than they were even the last time he dealt with it.

          Glad he has been able to be in his grand kids lives. Best wishes.

            That's how it is, man. I've seen my dad twice in ten years. He smokes 4 packs a day and will be dead soon. He's close with my sister and her kid, but my kids barely know him. It's just how it is sometimes. Good luck.


            I edited to change the amount of time its been. I meant to say twice in ten years...not two years.

                  Prayers being sent for your dad
                  Give a man a match, & he'll be warm for 20 seconds. But toss that man a white phosphorus grenade and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

                    Hoping your Dad will be OK and that you can all spend quality time together. These are the reminders to nudge us - life is short. Love each other while you can.

                          Some folks are not over emotional, they keep it all pent up inside.
                          Some are just quiet and private, while still others are just assholes.

                          Hope it all works out for you and yours. (fist bump) chin up man.

                            Can be hard getting close to a son. Just sayin.

                            Take him out. Visit him. Make the effort, because what you do now are the memories you will carry when he's gone. And regret, as emotions go, sucks balls.

                              Nah, It's kinda on him now. I moved closer, he moved away. He does the obligatories though, he stopped by to drop off a card for my boy yesterday. That's good and as much as I can expect. In a few weeks I have 3 kid birthdays in 8 days. My youngest girl is the last of the three birthdays, he's never come on her birthday. He gives her her card the day before on her older sisters birthday.

                              It is what it is, I guess. I hope to be a lot closer with my own grandkids.
