Dad has now gone into hospital early hours of this morning with chest infection turned into pneumonia. He was in last week for three days. We have asked for palliative care for dad as we think it is the right thing for him. He doesn't seem in any pain and all of you who know me might remember that he hasn't talked in a long time, except when he had a mild stroke about a month ago and talked for about a week after. Well today he has talked since 3oclock this morning, and tonight he has called me by name which he hasn't called me in at least 2yrs. What a shock it was for me and a joy mixed into 1. Also he walked up until Saturday. I know this isn't going to be easy, but just trying to look on the positive side while i can. Thank you all for being with me this far through our journey.
