80

Last year, at your request, we made you barbecued leg of lamb and pineapple upside down cake for your birthday celebration; and we laughed all night long, stuffed and happy. This year I brought you coffee-from-the-outside to have with your afternoon snack of Digestive cookies in the hospital, your proper celebration - and release - delayed by frustratingly poor internal communication.

But you're still here. You're still here.

And maybe, just maybe, tomorrow you'll be home.

I love you. Happy birthday, dad.

Happy Birthday! A great day to have been born. We could have partied together. Give him a big hug from me since we share the day. ;)

You can see the warmth of your family in those pics. I hope he is home soon.

Happy belated!! I triple love that last picture of your dad. It looks like he has one of those loud, no-holds-barred laughs and I love that.
