Hi... It's terrible not knowing what to do. My sister went away for a vacation two days before my Dad died. He insisted that she went. But then he died and my sister had to book a flight and hurry back. She always felt sorry that she didn't stay home. But she did'nt want to go against his wishes; she thought that, by staying home, it would seem to him that we were thinking he was going to die any minute and she didn't want that. So she went. I think that you should go to stay with your Dad because it's obvious that it's what you want most. Of course it's not so easy going against his wishes but don't you think he'll understand? With my Dad, I alway wondered if, by asking my sister to leave for her vacation, he wasn't trying to convince himself that, by wanting it enough and by arranging things like "Go away and I'll see you later", he was going to stay alive longer. Maybe that's what your Dad's trying to do too: "Don't come home now, wait till Christmas (I'll still be here!)" I wish you good luck and a lot of strength. Christine.
