We're all feeling sad in my family, at the moment.

My dad is very ill and he's been in hospital. 

He is in the late stages of Alzheimer's and will not get better.

The last few years have not been easy, especially for my mum

who has cared for him, day in, day out.

There have been family disagreements along the way but...

only because we care!

My mum has soldiered on.

 Even though she has not been in the best of health herself,

her sense of duty has not wavered.

I know that she will never look back and think to herself,

'I could have done more.'

Anyone who knows anything about this horrible disease

will know what it entails.

All I know is that it's a very 'steep learning curve', dealing with someone

 who has Alzheimers !

 I can only hope that my dad is as comfortable as possible, during his

remaining days.

The photo above was taken a year ago, when Meggy visited.

He loved seeing Meggy.

Sadly, I don't think he will get to know her little brother,

who is due very soon.
