    Dad has been critically ill for some time now, and the lab work is now showing a cryptococcal infection in his lungs. As I understand it, this is a fungus growth in the lungs. Sounds nasty. One cause is bird droppings, and the doctor was very interested in the fact that Dad raised chickens at...

    My dad is very ill. He just keeps saying that he is so tired. Today he was placed in a pressurized room to help him breathe. I don't know what to expect. My mother keeps saying, "What am I going to do?"

    Most dads teach us a lot, either by word, or by good example, or sometimes, even by bad example. In honor of Father's Day tomorrow, can you share one lesson your dad taught you?

    I found out when my mom sent me an email yesterday. I haven't seen him since I was 4. I read the obituary that my mother sent, it said he is survived by his loving son. No mention of me or my sister. I know it's silly, I haven't seen or spoken to the man in over 20 years, but this for some...

    Anyone have any ideas for my dad - he's 69, lives in Florida, has everything he needs/is well off. He had a serious stroke five years ago and is now sight impaired - he can see things but they have to be large (he's actually legally blind by definition - he uses a computer he talks into). He can...

    My sister found him this morning, in bed, in his apt. He had had a respiratory infection for the past week, and being a longtime chain smoker, it was reeking havoc on him. They were doing their best (my sisters) but he refused to go to the hospital. But the doc had him on antibiotics...

    I saw my dad yesterday and he said he had something for me. He handed me a check for $1,000 and said "happy summer". I was stunned! So...what am I going to do with the money you ask? Well I have to be honest, my first thought was "I can get my $500 chimnea!". But What I'm really going to...

    My dad is going through some health stuff right now that is changing his routine quite a bit...he is 83, so routine is very important to him, and change is always suspect. There is just the two of us and my son here, so it's a bit tough. Prayers and good thoughts gratefully accepted! Thanks!

    My Dad passed away in January of this year. Although time has made things easier, there are still times when something like hearing a train whistle will cause me to cry like a baby from missing him. (He was retired from the railroad) My sister read an article on dealing with grief during the...

    Boy does that feel good, I havent been able to say that since 1992. Even tho we arent together anymore... I still have you in my heart and every year I sadly whisper " Happy Fathers Day Dad, I love & miss you." This year I can say it out loud.

    I got a circular saw for my hubby...as per his request. It wasn't cheap. I wanted a good quality one (not that he'll use it that much) and paid $89.99 plus tax. If he thinks that's too much he can get a cheaper one from Wal-Mart for $67.99 plus tax.
