Waiting

Because he's still able to breathe, my dad is not technically brain dead, but all of his higher functions have stopped.
Nothing that made my dad my dad is left.
He opens his eyes reflexively, but he's not there.
Now we're just waiting.

I'm so sorry, Jon. I just heard. Your dad will be in my prayers. Please call me if there is anything I can do.

Oh, Jon...I'm so sorry. I continue to hold your family in my thoughts.
