    Came back from my weeks respite today.
    Walked into the house. and Peg gave me such a beautiful smile ,put out her arms to me and gave me a kiss.
    She looked so pathetic and lost, sitting there and it really cracked me up,I had such a job holding back the tears.
    She did not ask me where had I been,she had not missed me,she just said "you are good to me",just for a few flowers.
    I have just read Connie's post in a similar vein,to understand the pain and the breaking heart one must have been there.
    To love some one as much as I love Peg,creates moments of desperation.
    I would willingly give up all that I have to have my Peg back again
    If I believed that we would meet again wnen we leave this life, it would help,but I cannot accept that
    I cannot tell whether my respite does me any good whether it makes life harder
    I suppose getting more relief from the 24/7 chores mus t give the strength to carry on..

    I am pleased to see you back Norman.
    I am sure the respite does help, does give you a chance to recharge your physical batteries - nothing will help your breaking heart though Norman.
    Much love, Helen

    Dear Norm......welcome back, we have missed you.

    Do hope you have managed to recharge your batteries. I am sure Peg, in her own way, missed you too, even if she did not appear to notice you had gone.
    Life is a b...h sometimes. See you soon, love

    Welcome back Norman

    I can't imagine what it's like to care for a loved one 24/7 - heartbreaking I'm sure. A break away can only be a good thing.

    If only we knew

    Take care
