So sorry to hear your Dad has gone Lisa-Ann. I know how you are feeling, and am sending you lots of love and hugs from UK. Much love to you and your whole family. I’m sorry he had to suffer, and I’m glad he’ll be at peace now.
I just sent you an email. My heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your courageous dad. I’m also sorry that hospice made your burden heavier – please don’t eat yourself up with guilt over your dad’s last days, as you did EVERYTHING possible for him. You’re a wonderful daughter and he was proud of you.
I know I haven’t kept up with posting but things have been really difficult this last month or so. I lost my dear Dad on December 17th. He was surrounded by all of his children as he took his last breath. The night before he was screaming in pain all night, and there was nothing that could be done. He had developed a Kennedy Ulcer in his Sacral area that caused him more pain than the cancer itself. Unfortunately, we did not have a great experience with Hospice, as they never addressed this ulcer and many other concerns I had about his care and comfort. I never want to see this happen to anyone. I will write about my experience in detail, when I can type without the tears.
I want to thank everyone here on this board for all the support I received, and let it be known that Dad fought a Courageous Battle till the end.
