Spuffy - End of days (asleep)
This morning Dad and I listened to a double CD of hymns, and Dad wnted me to sing ... shows what a strong person he is if he can cope with that!!!  By then it was lunch, and they got a small amount of soup into him, as well as a small scoop of chocolate mousse.

Tim and Claire came in for 5 minutes, which was a "joy" .... I did learn that the house is exchanged, and the deposit paid, so we are letting them have a set of keys today so they can store stuff.  I have to go there this evening - and it's a Goodbye to the last family home for me.  I also have to take photos of the gas/elec/water meters, and Claire wants pictures of the empty rooms.  They were upset as they couldn't get tme off work and mentioned about the days going past .... I made the mistake of saying that I was worried about work, and they just said that I was OK to have the 3 weeks off with no questions.

About 10 mins after they left Nick arrived.  He was delayed as he had started work today, but apparantly had been called to a meeting and he is now suspended on full pay awaiting an occupational health report.  Hard for him as he has planned his lessons as from Monday, but good that the school is keeping an eye on him.  I had ordered him lunch (which had annoyed Claire), but was really glad I had when I heard this news.  He was only here a short time before he had to head off again.

This afternoon, as well as going to Mum & Dad's I have to take Jiffy to the vets.  He should have gone last week for a check up, but haven't wanted to be away from Dad ... today I just need to get him checked, as I have to take the keys there anyway.

Well as you can imagine, there's no real news.

I do want to say sorry for the lack of focus on your posts ... I hope I haven't missed anything vital.

This will be f-locked because of my Claire comment!!

This time in limbo, with all its comings and goings, must be trying. We said goodbye to the mister's family home last time we visited. It was harder than expected.

I think the numbness that has overtaken me helped me to say Goodbye to our home.

Life in limbo is a good way of putting it, and it must be so difficult for you to have to try and concentrate on things while most of your mind is with your Dad.

Hope Jiffy is OK, *hugs* for the handing over of the keys, I know that will be emotional for you saying goodbye to the family home.

I'm glad that Tim & Claire and Nick were all able to visit your Dad today.

Jiffy continues to have minor problems, so may need minor surgery. However the vet is happy to "watch" till I feel human again.

I think the numbness that has overtaken me helped me to say Goodbye to our home.

It was good to see Nick every day, and Tim most days.
