Dad - update

Dad  took a turn for the worse last weekend, and developed acute pneumonia - this was on top of the MRSA he had contracted, and the fact that he had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and his kidneys were failing.  We were told it was unlikely that he woud reach his 92nd birthday, although we still kept our hopes up.  Sadly Dad passed away on the morning of his birthday, September 6.

Daisy is still in the hospice and holding her own, and the last few days have been very good for her.

I will be back soon.

Hugs

  21. Oh Val, I am so sorry to learn the sad news about your father. You and your step-mother are very much in my thoughts and I hope that in time you will find some comfort in knowing that after his fall, your Dad did not suffer the prolonged pain associated with a broken hip and is now very much at peace. Hugs, Lesley
