My dads brother...

Wel first off I have only been with crossfit for about a month or so, I haven't even posted a pic yet.

Well my dads brother, my uncle Richard, has phenomia, been in the hospital for 6weeks now. My dad got the call yesterday that they want to pull the plug on him, it will ultimately be up to my dad to make the call. We thought he was going to pull out of it, when my dad was just down, my uncle was doing better.

My dad is on his way down to Colorado from Tx. again and we wont know anythiong till tomarrow.

Uncle Richard was a good part of the reason i ever joined the military, he served the corp and was in Korea.(just barely, he was soon discharged,or caught the end of it) He didn't talk much or at all about it.

My dad will see his little brother take his last.

So any prayers are welcome.

The next few Wod's will be in his honor till he passes, some small way to share his suffering.

If this is the wrong place for this thread, or the wrong substance, then please delete it. I like the suport you guys have for each other and just wanted a bite of it.

Re: Muy dads brother...

Sorry for your loss. My grandfather-in-law just passed away last week, he was in WWII. I'll be thinking about your uncle.

Re: Muy dads brother...

Thanks to all of you, I will check the e-mail now. I am more worried about my dad and Uncle Richard. My dad is my hero(I know, but he is) to see them go through this tough.

Thanks Ben, sorry for your grandad in law, i will pray for your family.

So, the workout of the day so far is the 5sets of 5 deadlift at 10:00 this morning, and it looks like another/different WOD with the guys at lunck.
