Dad

Hello everyone, how is everyone? I have yet another stinking bloody headache, I have had a headache every day for close to a month.

Last Friday my dad asked my sister Sandra if he was going to die, she held his hand and said yes dad you are, he asked when and she explained we don’t know when but he is very sick. Shortly later his GP arrived to check him over and he asked the doctor the same question. The doctor looked at Sandra who said he just asked me that before you arrived and I told him yes. So the doctor told dad that Sandra was right, dad asked the doctor when would he die and he was told that he is very sick and could die at any time there is no way of knowing when.

All my siblings have commented on how I do not go and see dad, I did manage to get over to see him on Sunday, but it is hard for me as I cannot drive and have to rely on others. It isn’t that I don’t care because I do care more than words can express but I do find it difficult to get there.

The first thing I say to mum each night is how is dad.

On Sunday Kathy-Lee drove me to see dad we had Summer with us and seeing Summer would make dad’s day as for dad family is everything and he loves the young ones in the family.

Dad is a fighter, he had lung cancer in 2009 and was told that he would be lucky to survive for 5 years post lung cancer and when he was going through the lung cancer it was knowing that in January 2010 he would have 2 more granddaughters and a great-granddaughter.

I love my dad so much and he has always been my hero a man who could do anything.
