I’ve always thought of my dad as This kind of untouchable force of energy, never defeated when knocked down, always able to get back up again, so I never thought in a million years of which anything like This kind of could happen to him.”
“although I am extremely comforted to know of which, even though he did experience a heart attack, I was right because even after going through of which he got right back up again as well as didn’t let of which stop him,” she continued. “Even from the hospital, only a few hours after of which happened, he was back to his classic ways: putting the oxygen tubes in his mouth even though they’re meant for his nose, sleeping on his side even though he was supposed to lay straight on his back, unhooking himself via the wires to pee even though he wasn’t supposed to move, trying to take out his IV himself as well as of course playing 80’s music all night long while we spent the first night at the hospital.
