Goodnight Dad, sleep well

Lost my Dad last weekend. Still don't know what happened, it was all so sudden in the end but it's with the Coroner now, PM on Monday. Dad was pretty poorly with multiple health issues and the Alzheimers only made it harder to work out what was going wrong for him. I can only say that I feel relieved for him that it's over and relieved for me that I never lost him completely to Alzheimers, he still knew who I was and where he was (at home with me). I'm grateful that he never got to the stage of being in pain with his cancer or being completely lost and upset by the Alzheimers. I miss him dreadfully, it's been a hard 3 years.

Condolences snorkmaiden - within your sadness, though, I'm pleased for you both that he was with you at home. He can now rest in peace. And you will be able to carry on your living with peace of mind.

Condolences on the loss of your dear Dad, wishing you strength to get through the painful times ahead as you grieve. Having cared for him at home must mean that there are so many painful reminders all around you each day. Hope you are managing to get some rest now that he is at peace.

Take care.

Thank you everyone for your kind words and support. Though I never posted here much I certainly read often and took both comfort and advice from other peoples stories. So from Pull-Ups and POA to Sundowning and drug side effects thank you all so much for your help xxx
