Bummer Glen, mine is on the way out. He is in and out of the hospital. 4 days in 2 days out and repeat the process again. This has been going on for a few months. He is a tough old bird.

My parents celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary on May 9. My dad passed away on June 22 this year. Even though he spent the past two years in a nursing home with Alzheimers slowly taking him, he remembered their anniversary. I sure do miss him too.

Lost my dad four years ago. His funeral visitation was on his 70th birthday. Still miss hearing his Ole and Lena jokes and his puns. I lived three hours away after I got married, but I talked to him at least once a week.

My Dad's 85 and he's sinking faster and faster it seems. His ongoing battle with the dreaded C compounded by a bout of pneumonia this summer has prevented him from wetting a line. He's feeling almost good enough to chase down them Red River walleyes this fall which is really the only thing that keeps him going. Fishing is definitely in his blood.

Get him out there while you can, mine is past that point, so I can't get him out, and that sucks.

This last Saturday would have been my Dad's birthday. I wanted to go out fishing but the weather did not cooperate. Fishing was one of those times that my Dad and I got along all the time no matter what happend. I do miss those days. The thing that keeps me going is that he is up there catching lunkers any time he wants to.

Hope

My dad passed away in 1998, all alone in a nursing home. I found out online at the Social Security Death Index. He told the people at the nursing home that he didn't want any of us notified, some friend of his made all the arrangements. Too bad Dad, you really don't know what you missed.

Today is the anniversary of my father's death 9 years ago. How strange to finally get on FM after a few days of school/work craziness and this thread is up here. He had lung cancer and was very sick. Sometimes it's a blessing to let them go.

I hope it all turns out well for you and your family Glenn. I hate the cancer word. Nothing worse then that. Been through it too often with my family. Luckily my imediate family has pulled through thus far but it's taken a lot of my aunts and uncles. It's never fun. Luckily in MN we have some of the best in the world. If you can make a trip to the Mayo, they are great at what they do down there.

Yeah... cancer... took my grandmother and grandfather (two different side of family) within 2 weeks... grandmother died after a very LONG battle with this rare cancer on August 5th... then two weeks later, my grandfather died from stomach cancer only a week after doctors found it... to make things worse... they both died right before my senior year in HS was to start... sure was lonely not seeing my grandfather (he didnt miss any of my home games) at my football games... but we all know he had the best seat and best of all it was free grin

Hope things will look up for your family...

thanks everyone, like i stated earlier still waiting for cancer specialist appt. at this point it appears to be cancer need to more testing. to my surpise my wife and dad in law have positive attitudes. to everyone that has responded that also has dealt with family with cancer my thoughts and heart also go out to you, that cancer is a nasty thing to deal with. there is hope, i was a stianless steel welder for 28 years and one of our customers we built tanks for was genetech and the vessels we were building for them was for a drug called avastin, it prolonged the life of colon cancer patience and they told us there thoughts were this drug or a derivative of it someday would take out cancer.

    • well the seeds were planted four days ago and to my surprise when I checked them this morning they had already germinated. I will wait awhile before I tell you who was the winner.. Empirical testing at its best!
    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
