You remember some weeks back I told you that my dads friend, his best friend, was dying? And at the time he went to visit him? His friend had a huge tumour on his lung, it was inoperable. Well he died last night, at 2 AM this morning, its so sad.
My dad is so upset. Naturally he is. His friend is being cremated. His cremation is happening today. I thought it was happening pretty quick, but maybe that’s what he wanted.
Before the cremation, he’s reposing at the funeral home for a few hours. I don’t know though, why he’s reposing, as that’s not what he wanted, since he was all swollen up, his head, hands, legs etc were all swelled up for the last few weeks before his death.
My dad is finding it extremely difficult to cope. He’s not good at showing emotions. You can tell he’s upset but he doesn’t want to let me in, he really doesn’t want to admit how upset he actually is about the whole thing.
He only saw his friend that one time before he died. He did tell me that the reason he didn’t go see him again is that he didn’t want to remember him being ill, he wanted to remember him the way he used to be.
That’s fair enough I suppose. He’s worried now about seeing him today in the funeral home. He said he will probably look awful. And he’s worrying about having that image of him burned into his mind.
I hope he’ll be able to cope. I worry about him. I hope it wont be too hard for him to see his friends dead body.
If you pray, please pray my dad will be ok.
I’d appreciate it. thanks, guys!
Mom is finally home from her camping trip. Thank god!
I have missed her. Dad is hard to deal with. He’s so controlling. I am so glad mom is back home now again.
And it was never more apparent how glad I was, until my dad blamed me for frightening the dog, his dog. He said I had a squeaky voice, and his dog was scared of it. I call bullshit!
But mom took up for me! She told him to shut up and she said maybe it was his loud rough voice that scared the dog. She said I didnt have a squeaky voice and to take no notice of him.
Thanks mom! I love you!
I’d like to wish all of you a very happy fathers day!
I hope everyone had a nice fathers day today, and if you still have your dad in your life, I hope he has a nice day too. For those who dont, I hope you can remember him with fondness and that you have many happy memories of spending time with him throughout the years.
As for me, my dad is still here with me, he had a nice day, I gave him a card with some money in it, and we had a family dinner with all of us myself, my sister, mom and my dad and my sisters two kids all together. It was very special.
I am very happy we got to make lots of happy memories today. It felt nice to be able to do that. My dad was very happy with his gifts, and I think he felt appreciated and special on his special day.
My parents are going to visit their long time friend this morning. He’s dying. He hasn’t got long to live.
He’s been asking to see them. He’s got a tumour on his lung. Poor guy. I feel for him.
I don’t envy them having to visit him, I think it will be hard, visiting someone whose dying isn’t going to be easy.
What do you say? How do you handle it? I don’t think I could do it.
I do think though that its good they will go, before he passes on. It will be good for them to be able to say a goodbye. This may be the last time they see him.
Well now…Thank god its friday!
I love Fridays! I love that its almost the weekend!
This weekend is going to be good for me! I am going to my parents as usual to spend the weekend!
But tomorrow there is a work function that is going on for friendly call. I will be going to it. Its a meet and greet for new clients. New people who are referred to us, but there will also be some of our clients who are already service users there.
We’ll have coffee, tea, cakes and sandwiches. And a bit of a chat also.
It should be good!
That is my only plan this weekend. But I will hopefully have fun there and enjoy it.
My mom is babysitting my sisters kids for the weekend. So they’ll be at her house all weekend. My sisters going off to Killarney with her partner for two nights. I hope they’ll have fun!
Well whatever you do have a great friday and an even better weekend!
Right now I am just waiting for my PA amanda to get here! She’ll be here in an hour. I’m thinking of going for breakfast. I need to go get my money out of the ATM and I am thinking of having my breakfast while I am out doing that.
We’ll see. I might do it. Or then again I may just eat fruit that I have here at home.
Catch yall later!
Can you all please send some prayers and good wishes to our dad?
He’s ill! He has a severe chest infection! He went to the doctor and the doctor gave him a course of steroids, and an antibiotic to take.
The doctor also said he has low iron, and needs to have his bloods checked again, to see how low it actually is now, and so he made an apt for april 16th to have his bloods done on that date.
Also he is going to be having a bone density scan soon as he has brittle bone and its getting worse, he’s had some flare ups recently.
So any and all prayers and good thoughts wishes good vibes are appreciated!
I didnt feel safe at home. I feel so unsafe. So I rang mom. I asked her if I could come over, spend tonight and tomorrow night at their house.
She agreed. So I am here now. I am glad of the company. At least I cant really isolate when I am here.
I booked my taxi to take me to college tomorrow morning. I feel I should make an effort and go. So I booked it and whether I sleep tonight or not I will go.
Its better if I go. It is best if I keep busy. Stay distracted.
My thoughts are a little overwhelming at the moment. So I made some tea. I watched a little tv with my parents. Now I’m in the bedroom where I’ll probably stay for the rest of tonight.
