My dad is in hosputal with the above...i can see him slipping away. The antibiotics havent been working and death is predicted soon. They are giving the antibiotics one more go this will be the third...if they dont work this time palliative care will commence. We have been told he cant go back to the nursing home yet as he is too frail and they said the last thing they want is for him to slip away in the ambulance. I dont know if im asking anything here...i hope this oost isnt too upsetting I just had to share...feeling so totally alone. Everyone including me is supporting my mum but i dont feel supported enough...ive just had a few cliches...nothing helps except music. Hugs and warmth off someone close would help but i dont know why i dont really get those. Just to try and end on a positive note i did have some bonding with my dad and mist of my memories of my 16 years with him are happy. We had the same sense of humour and he taught me how to care for people and how to protect myself. He was my strongest influence. We lost him already dur to early demetia at age 62...hes now 74 its been a long and konely journey for him and i think hes probably ready to sleep always. So precious and always in my heart. Xxxxxx
