For the past 3 months not being able to be with my dad has been unbearable for us. I can only imagine how much worse it must be for him, My dad is on a ventilator and is unable to speak for himself. I can’t just call him on the phone and talk to him and explain what’s going on. He’s unable to call for help or to tell me what is going on. When I am with him in the room, he responds to me, he smiles, he’s able to mouth words to me. The emotional toll this has taken on myself and my family some days it’s hard to get through. I don’t remember the last time I didn’t cry because I miss him so much. Before the ban, I was with him everyday. It hurts so much to know that he’s there in bed all day and night alone.
