Lost on the job

Ok. Due to some blockage in the blog posting, I'm gonna give you guys a little more time to get your requests in.

In the meantime, I thought I'd ramble on a bit. Mainly cause I need to.

I know I haven't spoken of my Dad before. This is more due to the pain it uncovers.

Two weeks ago Dad went into an iron lung. He's been there ever since.

Not that it wasn't unexpected or anything. I guess it was just the nature of his job. Eventually his number was going to come up and a fortnight ago it did.

I figured no worries. Couple of days and he'll be out of there. You know how people hold on to false hope, and kid themselves.

Yeah... well... I'm no different to the rest in that regard.

Mum's lost weight. I've had to put a cowboy hat on her just so I can keep track, although it has to be said that walking through the childrens ward on route to the part of the hospital where Dad is, wasn't my best idea.

Poor kids are probably traumatised from seeing that floating hat. They kept shouting Woody's dead. Woody's dead.

I thought they were talking about Free Willy. Damn... I broke down too! Fortunately I spotted a Toy Story poster and realised who they were talking about. Oh well... kids are resilent huh? They'll bounce back. I hope!

Anyway... we've been keeping a near constant vigil beside the iron lung where Dad is. Despite the objections from Doctors and Nurses we sneak food in for him. Although it's hard to make out what he's saying he maintains he's doing well.

It's funny how not having your folks around makes you question things. The daily trek to the hospital is taking it's toll on all of us.

I just hope it's not too long before Dad gets that thing fixed.

Fucking mechanics! huh?
