Glad he's doing well and hope he gets back home and bugs you doing things.  Way better than the other side.

I also miss Jim.

Sounds like the PT motivated him to get up and recover from this. He is old and may not have a lot left but it's awesome that he is up and moving. It's a huge first step..

Dad passed away early this morning. 

Dad had been doing fairly well in assisted living with only a few ups and downs from which he always bounced back. His condition took a turn for the worse a few days ago. Weak and in bed, not eating or drinking, then put on oxygen. 

Got a call at 4 a.m. this morning that he was deteriorating fast. I was on my way when I got a call from the hospice nurse that he had passed.

We made arrangements today.

I should have kept this thread updated, my bad. There were good times and a few not so good.

98 ain't bad, not bad at all.

Sorry for your loss - I was doing triple digits trying to make it home to be with Mom and missed it by 5min.  
 

Be well and understand this time just sucks. Be kind to yourself and just step back when you need to.

It will sort itself out but it's a marathon not a sprint.

Sorry to see this. On a positive note I'm sure everyone here would be ok with making it to 98. I know I would.

I have been there, and I understand this better than you can probably understand at this point in time. 
 

I raise my glass to you and your father.

My condolences.  98 is a good run.  It bodes well for you.  Just think of the times you had, that is a gift.  Sad to say, but grief is the payment we make for love.

Sorry for your loss, at least he had a good run and it sounds like he was doing well quite nearly to the end.

You are a great son.   Condolences for your loss but take solace that your dad was proud of you.

Thank you all for your thoughts and condolences, they are much appreciated.

I'll try to fill in the gaps from where I left off earlier to present.

There are a lot of good memories with Dad and I will share a few of the best stories. 

Viewing is today and burial is Tuesday. 

Damn, I miss Dad and our routine already.
