Re: Hard times
My Dad is terminally ill with cancer and is currently unable to look after himself. I've had to watch him drift in and out of consciousness almost solidly for the last few days and nights as he is unable to get any meaningful sleep most of the time. The sedatives that he's been getting only seems to do so much and, while he seems more comfortable when he is on them, they do very little to prevent him from being disturbed every 30 seconds.
Thankfully tonight has been a lot better than the last few days but it is killing me to see him like this, it's by far the most difficult thing I've ever had to do. My thoughts go out to anyone who has been or is in a similar situation.
