My dad is asking me when I'm visiting during phone calls. Dad never asks me when I'm visiting. Dad barely even wants to talk on the phone. The first time I called him at the hospital and he answered, we talked a little and as the conversation was ending I said "Well, I just wanted to call and say hello and see how you were doing." and he said back "Thank you, I really appreciate it honey." It brought tears to my eyes. I tend to get a little emotional when he actually says something, because he barely speaks.
My dad has never been much of a talker. But when he does say something, it has effect.
Transiting Pluto has been opposite his Mars/Chiron conjunction. I just found it. The dots are connecting here. His health is deteriorating. His body is morphing and he's lost so much muscle and strength. Pluto is tearing him down, slowly.
