My dad is very sick in the nursing home. He's been unconscious for a week or so now, stopped eating solid foods about the same time, and stopped even taking liquids early this week. While nobody is saying any kind of timetable, I don't think he has more than a few more days left. I'll probably be pretty distracted by this for a while.

As for the house, we finally got the estimate from the third builder. Hoping to make a decision tomorrow on which one and then go forward from there. Insurance company continues to be a dick, threatening to cut off our ALE money since we haven't started repair work yet.

Christmas was pretty low key, just dinner at my brother's house. 2016 has been a really sucky year, I'm glad it's almost over. And now I have a cold and can't sleep with the amazing runny nose it's giving me.

SO about two hours after I posted this, the nursing home called to let us know that he had passed. Goodbye Dad.

My condolences. I'm not sure what advice I could give after handling my father's probate in Conn. under different circumstances, but let me know if you need any.
