This & That Including What Ails

Solutions Not Easily Found – Part 2

on December 31, 2017

🐥Bird’s saga was not a good catch up for anyone, unfortunately.

Her father is at end stage lung cancer and is weighing less than 45kg in weight.

Nightly she has to cope with her father’s coughing and waking up to see to his needs.

Her mum has back pain and she has to do daily massages or rubs for her.

She has to also cope with long work hours that see her leaving office after 8.30pm daily.

The lack of sleep and good rest has made her sickly and she must plod on.

She bemoaned not having any self time as it is work and then home with chores.

Her 2 useless siblings are also non existent and we both commisserated with each other. We were both in the same boat for siblings that we both had ex communicated.

Without sounding wicked we both felt that it would be better for her father to pass quickly as the pain and suffering is too much.

We stopped texting when 🐥Bird reached her train destination station.

I feel for her. 

Keep chin up Bird..🐥all our woes will pass over time!👌

    Sometimes, I do feel this may be best for the one who is just an echo (“shadow”) of the real person they were, then it may be easier not to prolong their life. Hugs xo 💖
    Hope this works out all right for Bird (and if it happens to your family member, for you, too.)

    It isn’t callous to wish someone at the end of their life could be without pain – even if that means them dying. I feel very sorry for the Carers in these cases; as you say, working all day and then being a nursemaid all night is exhausting and unsustainable. Sending sunbeams to you and Bird. 🙂

    I didn’t like this. I am living this, too….Sending my thoughts and hugs to you and to Bird.
