My father has nine lives. He’s cheated death - and astounded doctors who gave him weeks to live - numerous times. In the process, he’s been in the hospital too many times to count and faced several life-or-death situations. Many times, he was too weak to grasp all the nuances of the medical mumbo jumbo. “Talk to my daughters,” he’d tell the doctors wearily.Submitted by Linda Haase on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 16:00
