    Well, he's gone. Went this morning at 8am. Only my sister was present. Least he went peacefully.

    It's a bit of a relief as he was in constant agonising pain even with morphine. He had to be drugged up to the eyeballs for it to make a dent in the end.

    Now we need to support our sister as she's understandably the one with suffering now.



    Shit, sorry Quad. FCUTA.

    Thanks all. I feel strangely peaceful. I've only just realised this morning that I knew him for 30 years. That doesn't seem to compute. I knew him before my sister got with him. It's all very weird. Just keeping in constant touch with both sisters to make sure the suffering one knows we're on tap if she needs anything at all.

    So here we go again, dad had regular check-ups last week. Had to come in for results this morning, which was weird considering to current conditions. Blood markers went up from 0,7 to 9 , nothing visible on the scans, so he's got to come in for two more this week. Brain seems most likely apparently.
    I work in the hospital so it's weird times anyhow, but I feel empty and lost right now. Couldn't even hug him.

    My mother in law is declining at a slow but steadily increasing rate. Her quality of life is low as she can't really stand up or do anything without help, so we're having to arrange more care fairly urgently.

    MiL lives abroad so none of the care is free, and she doesn't have any resources to speak of, so I have being paying all of her expenses for a while. I had to tell my wife today that we can only stretch the budget so far and then we're basically tapped out. It's only money and it doesn't matter but everything has its limit.

    Needless to say this is not helping our relationship or stress levels. I dunno, I guess it is what it is and there's not a lot more we can do to help her. That's the harsh reality.
