Thanks for all the well wishes;

At the start of last week the prognosis had changed to maybe 10 days to 2 weeks (most optimistic), however, as the week progressed dad slept more and more, quite surprising he always got up to the toilet and towards the end with support, this was always his wishes always to have control and I'm delighted this was to happen.

On Friday a syringe driver was commenced, he only briefly acknowledged people, spending most of the time sleeping, by Sunday morning he had drifted into a deep sleep and never regained consciousness, for about 2 hours prior to death his breathing changed and obvious swallowing impairment, peacefully he breathed his last at 16.04 on Sunday 26th April peacefully surrounded by his family.

The funeral has taken place, I miss him greatly, difficult days lay ahead his birthday, fathers day, christmas, family events etc, I'm not sure how I'll cope, the pain of this loss is awful.
