You are a force of nature @DesperateofDevon, here's to Peter, may he rest in peace and I'm raising my mug of camomile tea to you for your stubbornness, hanging in there when others would have given in, positivity and sheer passion for making life the best possible for your loved ones. Slainte!
Lots of love, your dad sounds as amazing as you do x
Some Bowl of Beauty Peonies for you to Desperate of Devon. I shall raise a glass of Proper Job beer from near your part of the world, to your wonderful Dad who was cared for by an amazing daughter. Take care.x
I'll be raising a glass to your dad and mine too who died this Sunday last year x
Thinking of you @Bunpoots xx
Thank you @Cat27
I've just caught up with reading as have been away for a few days. Sending love and hugs and wishing you strength in the days ahead xx
Well I’ll have to make do with a wine glass full of blackcurrent cordial and a bit of make believe, but here’s to both of them flying high.xxxx
A toast to all our loved ones touched by dementia & to those who love & care xx
Thank you everyone, the emotional rollercoaster of tears & laughter is exhausting. Formalities begin tomorrow,
I’m an emotional 5 hour clock, daughter & OH can predict next bout of tears!! ( so pleased to oblige!!)
Have picked out photos as am sure that I’m going to hit that exhaustion wall very soon.
The love & support on TP has kept me sane
Hoping that I’ll be able to return that support in the near future
So sorry to hear this, but so glad your dad is pain free.
You fought bravely for your dad and did him proud xxx
(not been on TP much the last few days so only just seen this)
Take your time @DesperateofDevon just post as & when ready. I found to start with I was very clear thinking for a few days, then whoosh complete mush. I didn't even get dressed some days. Like you say you hit a wall. Grief is very strange its like being in a car crash but with no visible injuries but inside you're all broken up. Time will heal. Sending big hugs & lots of support. X
Very eloquently put, & on the button.
Had a lovely friend of Dads just ring & im still smiling from the tales of exploits that I’d forgotten.
I really was a Daddy’s girl, my Dads little shadow - usually covered in grease taking things apart with him or his companion on trips to help or visit friends or family.
my poor Mum was well & truly ousted during my waking hours of childhood!
It makes me appreciate her generosity in allowing Dad to be close by to me this past year. I’m actually appreciating Mums situation more.
I’m determined to not have PJ days but do something that I would have talked to Dad about, however mundane or trivial!
My garden will be well tended, & I’m looking for wildlife & taking a moment to do so. Simple pleasures that bring. joy
Have a scout around your garden @DesperateofDevon, I've spotted daffodil greenery poking through already in sheltered spots; the thought of spring on the way gets me through the dreary, dark days of winter.
The dogwood is the most amazing colour
Who knew so much paperwork so many processes existed related to someone’s passing!
I am handing the executorship over to the lovely solicitor who sorted out the LPA. I’m done with forms etc & am going to just be the daughter.
the LPA has made things so much easier, but still ...
hoping Dad will be repatriated today xx
