My Dad died, aged 74, on the 13th of July morning from a cardiac arrest, he had been in fairly good health up to a couple of weeks ago when his collitis seemed to flare up again and GP said he had a bowel infection and gave him antibiotics on the 11th of July but he only got to the 13th. Really big shock as he was always as fit as a fiddle but I suppose as he got older, collitis and mild diabetes (he never watched his diet) took its toal on him. Massive gap in my Mum’s and my own life but we can take comfort from the fact that he didn’t suffer any pain in the end, he couldn’t have handled lying in hospital or being left really ill, its a long road without him but his spirit will always be with us, we only have one dad…God bless…
so sorry to hear of your sad loss.
Oh darlin, my heart goes out to you.
Yes, we only have 1 dad and 1 mum…they are missed terribly, it`s like a huge piece of us went with them.
We lost our mum 12 years ago. She`d been poorly with heart problems for years and died in hospital. It was the worst time of us 3 sisters lives.
But just 3 weeks later, dad followed, when he died suddenly at home. Like your dad, our`s would never have coped in hopsital. Another painful loss. Emptying their flat and dealing with their possessions killed us. Still hurts today.
But what we have and must hold on to, is the fact that we were lucky to have had such loving parents, who equipped us with the strength to go on.
It will take a lot of dealing with, pet, but keep strong and look after your dear mum.
much love, Pollyxxxx
My thoughts are with you Lost my dear mum a couple of months ago . Never easy Sorry for your loss
I’m so, so sorry. At least your father didn’t suffer (…not that that would be anything like consolation).
Hope you and your mother both find strength in each other and know that Dad’s at peace now, and looking down on you both with great love.
