I'm so sorry to hear about what's going on Ami. I hope that things work out for you and your family, and I know that losing any family member can be extremely hard.

My dad passed away at a very young age, just a few days shy of his 45th birthday, and it was extremely hard. He too was hooked up to a ventilator but after having good days & bad (more bad than good) it was the hardest decision we had to make as children (my mom passed the year before) to remove him from the ventilator and let be what would be. Sadly he passed away a few hours later. We all had a very hard time accepting this but we knew it was for the best, and he wouldn't want us to keep him hooked up to a "machine" (as he called it) just to keep him alive for our sakes.

I miss him everyday but I know that we all made the right decision, as hard as it was at the time.

Just enjoy every moment you have with your dad right now and I pray & hope he comes out of this for you & your family.
