The Family Was Taken By Surprise

The whole family was taken by surprise when we were told that our dear father has heart problem in 2014. When I heard this, I remembered that my grandmother has the same condition. It is definitely a confirmation that runs in to the family. Dealing with the situation is nothing new to us anymore, but it is admittedly more worrying since it involves father. I thought he would turn as pale as a ghost upon hearing it, but he took everything in stride. I mean, he wasn’t happy about it, but he wasn’t feeling down either. That’s so admirable of him. He seems like a strong man, so I know that he’ll pull through this. His attitude has actually made all of us deal with him and everyone else’s condition positively, too. It made us realize that it would help them a lot if we were strong for them. Needless to say, we’re helping each other power through the challenges with optimism. It seems the experience has brought the family closer together. With all the effort, my father’s condition worsen and he passed away so soon. Despite the painful lost, we still remember him a strong man and trying to live for his family. I was also the last person that talked to while in a state of coma to let go. Everything would be fine and his family will be taking good care of me. Then, his heart fluctuates as my teary eyes broke down when the monitor showed flat line. It was a relief for him and he will never feel the pain anymore. It was a heartbreaking situation and eventually, we accepted his fate and we still offer prayers for him.

@Hatley The pain is gone and the family started to live without him. But we still keep him in our heart.

To guard against heart disease please take 20ml or 2 dessertspoons of uncooked olive oil each day. Recent studies shows that it really works

In this case, all of you better have insurance coverage. If the problem runs in the family sooner or later, all of you will get it. Better have insurance so that you do not have to worry about money.

@Scindhia He was the strongest man that I've known. I had seen him struggle and trying to be a good head of the family. We were able to finish our university and learned to value things in our lives.

@Shavkat some people have to learn the hard way about family values so just do what you feel is right & let the others do the same it's out of your hands.

@sugartoes You said it right. I would continue to live without grudges and influence other people to do the same thing.

That's difficult to deal with. Losing a loved ones very difficult. It helps to think about the good times you shared with them.

@Teep11 You said it right. I was so really in denial at first. Eventually, I had accepted the fact that things really happen for a reason.
