I was in the Accident and Emergency Department with him while he languished in pain awaiting surgery…
The doctors told us there was a case in the theater that when completed, my Dad would be asked to come in.
We waited while this man was languishing in so much pain that I have never seen someone in till that moment in my whole life!
I held his hands and try to comfort him and assure him that it will soon be alright…
But after about 30 mins of my arrival, my Dad drew his last breathe…
LIFE WAS SUMMARIZED BEFORE MY VERY EYES 😥:
I have seen some patients die before but I have never been so shock until my own Daddy died before my very own eyes!
My life was broken into a thousand pieces. My dream of seeing him at my convocation was instantly shattered.
What a moment that was!
# Broken Dreams 😥
At that Moment…
I realized that what was important was not how rich he was; how influential; how many houses he has; how many cars he’s got..; but it was how much this man has loved us and made sacrifices for the betterment of us all.
I also realized that life can just end anytime…for just anyone.
That my Dad will die at 60 was the last thing I ever expected. It was something I couldn’t even imagine.
I was only informed he had strangulated inguinal hernia on Tuesday evening and on Wednesday morning by 10 a.m he gave up!
Here’s a man I wanted to see at my induction into the medical profession in less than 2 years, lying lifeless before before my very own eyes!
So my Dad won’t be there to witness the day I will graduate from medical school!
#So sad 😥
Indeed life is brief.
I love you everyday. And now I will miss you all the days of my life.
# Farewell Daddy
# I Love You ♥️
