Can you heal a relationship broken 25+ years ago?
So a little background, my parents divorced the 1st time when I was 3, then got back together when I was 51/2, then divorced again when I was 7. My father was an alcoholic, and had mental issues he refused treatment for. When I was 10, he vanished. I have had no contact with him since then.
Fast Forward 27 years, tonight I found out he is in the hospital in another state. He has emphysema & is dying. He has days to live. I spoke with him for the first time in 27 years. He asked me to come out. I am flying out in the morning by myself.
I do not really know what to expect, or why I am going, other than my gut tells me I should go. Thoughts? Comments? Support?
