    Dear Hazel,

    I had a few tears too, he looks such a lovely gentle kind man, I want to give him a big cuddle. It looks such a lovely place, I'm sure you will look forward to visiting him there in such a lovely environment.

    Hope you are able to have a bit of much earned rest now knowing that while you are not there he is in such caring hands.

    Much love,

    Thank you so much. I keep looking back at those photos, they comfort me when I'm not with him.

    Is that silly?

    Love,

    Dear Hazel,
    They are lovely photos & the home looks beautiful. Please take care of yourself now. I know how difficult it is putting a loved one in care. I don't want you getting depressed or anything like that.
    Love
    Joanne

    Thanks, Joanne & Roseann. I'm not depressed, Joanne, I was far more depressed when John was at home and I knew I wasn't coping.

    Now? I just feel guilty. The truth is, with proper care and constant company, John is getting better every day. I should be glad about that, but it gives me such doubts. Did I jump too soon?

    This disease truly is hell, isn't it? I don't think there's ever a time when you feel you're doing a good job. Anxiety, frustration, doubt and guilt are par for the course.

    To end on a positive: I planted my spring bulb pots this morning!

    Love,
