I hate to say "finally" but it really is a relief at this point. He was taken off life support last Friday, and off dialysis on Sunday. Everyone agrees that he'd probably find it humorous that he died on Friday the 13th though.

So, the funeral probably won't be until next Saturday (the 21st). I'll be 38w5d at the time (if Patrick hasn't arrived by then), and I'd be VERY nervous about him leaving! He'd probably fly out Friday evening and fly back Saturday after the service, but that's still more than enough time to go into labor. Especially since the girl who is going to be taking Erin will also be out of town for her sister's wedding that weekend. Murphy's law, huh?

But we got our tax return today, and we should also be getting DH's first paycheck and his sign-on bonus in the mail today, so we're planning on a sort of shopping spree tomorrow (new pants for DH and new shoes for the both of us, etc). So maybe walking for a long time at the mall will convince him to come....

It would be SO NICE if I had a baby this weekend. I think I could handle DH leaving for a day if Patrick were already here.

I've been praying for you guys...I'm sorry to hear that he has passed on...but like you said...I'm sure it is a relief to him and your family...he must be so happy seeing you guys from above...

Hopefully the shopping will convince Patrick that its time...I feel like its the Price is Right..."Patrick Reese...C'mon down!!!"

Still praying everything works itself out!!!

So sorry Brittanie, but like Dee said now he is free. Your family will be in my prayers during this difficult time. I can understand you being worried about DH being away so close to delivery date. I hope all goes well and you can get that little bugger to make an early appearance.

Thanks ladies. I only met Grandfather once, but he was such a funny old man. It's been hard for his family, but I think all of them are ready to get out of the "waiting" limbo and just get on to the grieving part.

I'm not sure, but I don't think that DH will go if I haven't delivered yet. We haven't had a chance to really talk about it yet.

I'm sorry Brittanie. When my DH lost his grandfather this past summer, it was a similar situation. He was in so much pain that his finally passing was a relief for everyone. Its still so hard though. I hope that Patrick will cooperate so that your DH can attend the funeral.

Also, have fun on your shopping spree ! You deserve it!

I'm sorry for your loss. I will be praying for DH and his family. It is so hard to see and hear about a loved one being in pain and suffering. He is now in peace, and is watching over you and your family.

I hope all your walking gets Patrick going - AND I hope you get some good deals today!
