My dad had a seizure this weekend. I'm now in the hospital by his side with my mom. He's doing pretty well now, the first day he wasn't responsive. It was a BIG relief seeing him wake up, and respond to the nurse.
Although I'm aware that most of you could careless about my history with my dad, but I'll share anyway. My dad has seriously taught me almost everything I know. He's one of the most smartest guys in the world. It's crazy how good he is with math, although he's a little over 60 he can still derive calculus equations on paper, just the other weekend he helped me find the equation for resistors in parallel for my electric circuits class. Thank god he showed me that equation or else my lab partner and I would have been in there for another hour or so.
My dad has been here for me since the very beginning. I couldn't have asked for a better dad. Unfortunately since he became an Electrical Engineer he became lazy and gave up on exercise and maintaining his health. I know I couldn't talk him into working out or anything, because he wouldn't listen.
I am currently following his footsteps, I'm a sophomore Electrical Engineering major at my local university. A few months ago I shared a cigar with my dad, and he gave me wonderful life advise. He told me that Alternative Energy is where money will go, he says gas will be limited to the public until there are other energy solutions.
I want to go into Alternative Energy and Electromagnetism. I know there are some very cool things magnets and electricity can do. Even generate power. I want to build something under car hoods where it generates power from heat. Traffic could generate power for cities.
Anyway, I don't want to lose my dad. He's helped me a lot paying for school and I ALWAYS wanted to see the look on his face when I get my bachelors in electrical engineering. He would be so ridiculously proud. I want him to be there, but from the looks of it I don't know if he will see me succeed. This really turns my world upside down thinking I'll lose my dad.
Has anyone ever felt the same way as me? What did you do? I'm looking for moral support and advise. I'm leaving the hospital tomorrow night and it'll hurt a lot to leave my dads side. I have confidence he will be okay.
Will you keep him in your prayers for me? thank you.
Thank you all :)

definitely praying for him, you, and the rest of your family.
I understand you, I really do. I wish I was eloquent and had great words of wisdom but I'm afraid I don't. keep hoping and keep faith that you won't lose your dad. unfortunately, I did...but life does go on (as cliche as that phrase is) & you learn to be strong.2
