Thanks guys, I think now I am running on auto pilot. With the drugs for pain, he is slipping deeper and deeper into ...... sleep.
So many times this morning I have thought I have heard the last breath but he still keeps chugging along....... stubborn bugger. [}:)]

Llew I am sorry, it is just not right when a child pre-deceases it's parents.
Amazingly so, that is happening here.

Sadly, my sort of, SIL has got her own problems now. Her uncle was crashed into by two young drunk drivers running a red light. He was brought in here the other night. They have just taken him off life support. As his head is badly damaged, they do not hold out much hope.
Life can be so sucky sometimes. [xx(]

Hang in there Spoook. I remember when my dad died (30 years ago) he seemed to go for days between breaths at the end, which lasted for weeks. My sister went a bit quicker than that, but she'd been suffering ill health for 20 years.

Weeks Llew???? [:0]

When I sat with my mother as she faded, her final nurse was called Grace. Today my father's nurse is called Grace. I wonder..............
He has to be waiting for something.

Well he was breathing all the time, but it was almost imperceptable. Then every few hours he'd take a major breath & scare the heck out of everyone.

So sorry to hear of your loss Llew .
I remember when we sat with my FIL - it was a very sad time for us as a family but empowering at the same time . We sat for 4 days until he passed away . The hospice nurses and support staff were wonderful .
Thinking of you Spoook and Llew . :)

Well, that part is over. 3.52pm today my father passed away, peacefully.
After having been in the hospital since Friday afternoon, I was pleased to leave tonight.
All day he has been breathing so shallowly and holding his breath, I though he was gone so many times. A very "on edge" day.
Reckon I will sleep tonight, I am so tired.

Tomorrow, the next round starts. So much to do, so little of me left right now.

Remind me, when I am not so tired, to tell you the story of the carpark. [}:)]

I just caught up with this thread. (((Spoook))) Words seem so inadequate at times like this, but I wish you peace and comfort coming to terms with ALL that has been put in front of you these last 6 months or so. May your God (whomever that is) be very kind to you for a very long time to come.

Hugs to you and L Spoook. As Valmai said, words are inadequate at times like these.

Love to you both,
