Thank you to Matto for being so kind as to post this thread. When I saw it, it brought tears to my eyes.
I appreciate everyone's prayers. I continue to pray as well, but I think it is highly doubtful that baptism will take place for a couple of reasons:
Except as a child, my father never really practiced the Jewish religion (except for the holidays). As he got older he became more and more anti-religion. Having said that, as an aside, one thing that he said to me I will never forget and made a real impact on me: "if you are going to be Catholic, do it 100%".
He is currently in the latter stage of dementia, so he is not in his right mind. Even if he asked for baptism, there is no way to know that he truly desires it or if he is just....talking more nonsense.
Regardless, prayers are never wasted and I thank you. He was given a month to live, but I suspect it won't be longer than a couple of weeks.
