This is the second hardest post I have had to write. The hardest is yet to come.

My dad is slowly slipping away. How long hes got no one knows, but he cant eat drink or swallow. His morphine is now being applied through a patch, and for when the pain gets really bad we have a syringe driver and diamorphine in the house for the nurses to use.

Hes asleep 99% of the time, which at least is a blessing. :cry:

Really sorry to hear that too. I pray you'll have support and strength at this time, that your dad will have as much peace as possible at this time. Im sure it is a comfort and a blessing to him to know he has a son who is there with him, supporting him at this time. I know there cant be much comfort at this time, but you should also be very proud of what you have done for him, and the care you have given, you may feel you are only doing what any son would do, but the fact is there are many people who want their relatives there and dont have that wish granted. You are really being a blessing to him, stay strong. :smt058

We're with you in spirit James. Good luck and hang in there. There ain't much you can do that you haven't done already. Be there to comfort him, I'm sure he still feels your presence.

Thinking about you always xx

Thanks all. We are waiting for the nurse to arrive and set up the syringe driver with the diamorphine. That should help him settle as hes getting quite distressed now

I usually find some words to say, but on this occasion that alone seemed to sum everything up.

:smt056 to you all, James.
