Thanks for that, and it's good to see you too, as it always is. I sure hope dad is proud and I hope he approves of how I take care of mum. I'm okay I guess and mum is too, We both miss him like crazy as you would expect but we're just trying to get on with things as dad would want us to do that.
I've got appointments next week with the banks to sort out dads accounts and stuff and I have to go into his old work next week to see about his pension and sort that out for mum. Not looking forward to that but I guess it's got to be done. I sorted out all dads funeral arrangements and dealt with the undertaker as mum wasn't really up to that and that was also not easy, but again had to be done. Mums sister and my cousins have been around a lot and that has been good for mum. I went back to day care centre yesterday to hand in thank you cards to all the nurses and staff and had a long talk with the head nurse and she was telling me some good stories of dad in day care and that was nice. And dads Macmillan nurse is coming to see us in the new year and mum will appreciate that. The minister who conducted the funeral is also coming to see mum again next week and he was also round to visit us twice leading up to dads funeral.
Yes you are so right about what you say about what we experience as carers, and I just hope I can do a good job now in caring for mum, as that would make dad happy and it is what dad wanted me to do. And yes I will be taking care of myself along the road.
Yes you are right about information helping us all so I will post stuff that I think may help us. And Rick does indeed do a good job of pulling posts containing adverts and keeping the site running well for us all.
My thanks and best wishes to you both.
