If you have five minutes....and only five minutes to talk to your parent one last time, what would you say to them?

I wouldn't talk at all; I'd get her to tell me all about her childhood and what I was like when I was little-I never really asked about those things. I wonder how similar DS and I were?

IDK ... i kissed her in the hosp.. & told her i loved her while we were there.. but once she came home... i never did that... i guess i thought i didn't have to anymore since it was already said... Same with her ,,, I think she couldn't ,, even tho she was pretty drugged up, she knew that if she said it she would cry...

So i guess just now... after almost a year i would just want to introduce her to her new grandchild....

But we will ,,, i'll bring her to the grave site ... i just honestly think i said everything & ditto for her...

Great question tho

I think I would apologize first. Part of me still blames myself. Still feels like I should have done more. gotten a second opinion. Found a way to make him fight it harder. I'm carrying around a lot of guilt that I don't know how to get rid of because I can't look him in the eye and apologize. Beyond that I would just want to listen to him talk about anything. I just miss talking to him.

This question brought tears to my eyes...

Boy, how I'd wish for five more minutes with my dad. I don't know what I'd say. But I know I'd hug him as tight as I could and never want to let go.

And I'd introduce him to his grandson. And I'd love to hear his reaction ~ since he looks SO MUCH like our side of the family.
