Dad is still with us, but drifting slowly towards Heaven. Very little response today, but still an occasional smile. He told me a few days ago he was chatting to mum. So great to see his mind full of happy memories at this time.
I spoke to my best friend today ... only to find out she had a breast biopsy yesterday, and din't tell me so as not to upset me.
However maybe it is good for us both to have the other one to worry about.
Yes, I owe replies - but my brain can't focus when I am with Dad as I am now. Thank you for your love and support - it truly means more than I can say.
