I really know how you feel. It was so painful when mum died and I'd been by her side on and off for weeks. Went home to get an overnight bag and she'd passed away on my return. Was so heartbroken not to be there while she let go. Just glad and privileged to be there for the weeks and months before she passed away. We can only do what we can and I'm sure like me you know that you were there for him when he needed you.I know everyone says that very often loved ones pass away when your out of the room but I told him I would always be there.
Hi Val,I had another sleepless night, thoughts of my poor Dads face keep haunting me but I have thrown myself into the arrangments with my family. I want everone to remember what a lovely man he was. He didnt deserve to end his days like that, no one should, it is such a cruel illness.
We have been talking about happier times before he was ill and that helps.
Its comforting to know I am not alone with this experience.
I know deep down I did all I could for him and I would do it all again if I had to because he was very special.
