My Dad developed health problems or he would still be hunting and fishing as often as he could.

It's a real shame because Dad hates the indoors and hates not being able to do all the things he loves.

It's also a shame because I had always looked forward to taking my sons hunting with my Dad but that's impossible now.

That's great that your Dad is still active. I always imagined my Dad would be very active as long as he lived. He's still more active than the doctors say he should be, but with the past few years he's come to realize that he simply can't do the things he used to do unless he wants to risk dropping dead.

Yep, that was my Dad for a few years. We really worried an extra a lot about him during those years.

He would still try to work on his own vehicles, try to do his own home maintenence, try to go hunting and fishing, etc. Each time he did this he would suffer and sometimes it would hit him so bad we worried whether he would make it or not and sometimes he would look like death warmed over for several days to a week before he picked back up.

My Dad has always, since childhood, been very independent and the kind to do everything himself and not ask for help for anything.

He quit school when he was 13 and worked hard physical labor jobs from that day until he was 62. For about 2 years he fed him and Mom by hunting year round when hard times hit the area shortly after they were married.

That is so amazing....my Dad also quit school at a young age and went to work for a commercial fishing business. When he was older he obtained his licence and operated his own commercial fishery and to this day still operates his fishing business.
