Me and dad went to see GP today and dad has agreed to have the macmillan care team come in. He was so upset saying he was a burden to mam and he just wanted the GP to help him stop coughing at night so he didn't disturb mam and she could sleep. He is so selfless and always thinking of others. I could hug him forever.
It was my birthday Sunday and my daughter was 6 yesterday so we had a really nice family meal out and went back to mam and dads for the 'cake'. It ended up being quite a celebration as they had bought Kate a pink cd player or 'boom box' and she had new pop music cd's which she played and we ended up dancing and having a right good laugh. To see dad's face smiling and laughing at us was lovely and he had a fab time. I had a cwtch with him on the settee and as nice a sit was I couldn't help but think, this will be my last birthday with my dad and I tried so hard not to cry. He was so happy and I didn't want to ruin it for him.
He's been given oramorph now to help with his breathing as the O2 doesn't seem to be helping much at all now. I hope it helps, really do.
I'll keep you posted when I can, take care all xxx
