Thankyou, all you lovely people. We've been to see him today, but no change. He seems peaceful and pain free. A Macmillan nurse chatted to us today, she is overseeing his comfort.
The Liverpool Care Pathway has had a lot of bad press lately, but I can't fault what is being done for Dad.
It's awful being in such limbo, it gets to the stage where you wish it was all over. I'm sleeping reasonably well, thanks, and trying to do normal things - life has to go on.

I have just seen your update and I am so sorry to hear about your father.

I will pray for your family as they support your father and surround him with their love at what must be a very difficult time for you all.

Just spotted this, I am so sorry your poor Dad has become so poorly and can only wish him peace and no pain. Such a dreadful shock for you after thinking he was on the mend from his fall.

I will be thinking about you, glad you have lots of loving support.

Sorry to hear this Lynda.

I hope your Dad has a peaceful night and that you too can rest before visiting again.



GinN Report 16 Jan 2013 21:52

Thakyou all for your kind words. I know I used to moan about him, but I'm really going to miss him. It seems to have happened so suddenly. For some reason, I've long thought he would live to be 89 - he's 86.
I've got tons of support, especially from my lovely hubby.


JustJohn Report 16 Jan 2013 21:50

Lynda, really sorry. He sounds such a character. Hope he remains comfortable and peaceful. Best wishes to you and family.


Sharron Report 16 Jan 2013 21:48

Oh Lynda. I am with you. The thing I live in dread of.

Don't know what to say.

You make sure you sleep.
