    Hello rarkaah

    I hope your dad can be made more comfortable. He needs comfort at this stage in his life, and so do you.

    Again another one just wishing you love and strength.

    This 'last stage' just seems so endless and the longer it drags out the more suffering it seems to involve.:(

    A week today before my husbands and I holiday and my emotions are all over the place xxx if my Dad was at peace I would be and that sounds awful and I feel guilty for saying it [emoji22][emoji22][emoji22] we are going to go I know he'd want it for when our Mum passed he postponed the funeral for us... and his wife now has made her plans and my family say we will do our own arrangements and I don't want them to reach their 10 wedding anniversary as he and our Mum was together 42 years
    It's a complete head rollercoaster xxx
