So lovely to hear from you, Loo x
Glad to see you posting again Loo xx
I’m so glad you have managed it at last Loo.
Welcome back - now to find your way home to your thread.
I’ll post on it so that it comes up nearer to the top of ‘recent posts’ for you to find more easily,
I hope you are able to read the print now. x
Thank you @Loopiloo and welcome back
It`s so good to read your post Loo and to see you back on line. You have been sorely missed.
Special thoughts for you on Henry`s birthday. xx
Sadly Dad didn’t make it to 2019. He died suddenly but peacefully on 30 December. By the end, he’d lost his mobility, his speech and was even struggling to swallow liquids. However, amazingly enough he had a brilliant day on Christmas Day and was wide awake throughout, even managing to polish off a three course meal! It’s incredible to think he was dead just 5 days later. Even the staff in his care home were shocked. He’d been there 2 and a half years and they loved him to bits. How lovely he was able to have a positive effect on people even when he was desperately ill xx
So sad @Kitten71 but so joyful too.
Yes, it’s the joyful times that see us through the sad ones. Watching dad battle his dementia has shown me what a strong and brave man he was. Not once did he complain about his illness or the future it held for him, he just got on and lived each day as fully as he could. Even in his final days, he could raise a smile and make me smile along with him too xx
That is wonderful.
My mother passed last July with sepsis but had AL.it was my first birthday and xmas without her.when alone i had a little tear.My sister said (when staying with her at xmas) i know i shouldn't say this but it was so inconvenient when mum was here over xmas as we didn't know what time the carer was coming time wise.so why did she say that! i just digested this sad comment and bit my lip as always i was mums 100% carer in her home until her passing i would have her back anytime but that's not to be
@Teddybear12 I'm so sorry to hear of your sister's insensitive comment. It's still very early days for you and I can understand how hard your must be finding this time of year especially. I'm glad you shared on here and I hope it has helped a little to share how you feel.
Thank you lzzy.i have a tear every time i read people's stories as i always feel we, as in my wife and i got off lightly with this terrible disease as mum only suffered around 3 years still long enough i know, but she wasn't that difficult to care for .regards
My sister, who had dementia, (amongst other things) died shortly before Christmas.
Unfinished business. If only we could have got on better. But that wasn’t possible, we never did.
I was terribly upset by the insensitivity of some relatives. I now realise it was thoughtlessness, (by later actions), not deliberate. But it has brought a lot of bad times back.
My son, well, I just couldn’t cope with that, not at this time. But that’s brought a lot of past behaviour back too.
So much worse at the moment. No doubt because he knows I’m upset. So I’ve lost it, more than once, and shouted at him. :-( :-(
Even the dog senses it.
Oh well, at least people have stopped asking if I had a good Christmas....
Thank goodness it is over now.

Sorry I have messed up that post of mine. It seems to have disappeared. Strange things happen when I type - new laptop. New system. W10.
