You are doing so well coping with all of this.

My mum was in hospital for a week before she passed with 24 hour care & I had enough trouble coping with that. Mum wanted to go home, but Dad did not believe that she should.

Your Dad must be so so proud of you looking after him, and keeping true to his wishes..

Is there a nursing agency in your area that could help you at home for a few hours every day so that you could get some sleep ? It might cost a lot, but you can only push your body and mind so far, and you need to keep well physically to be there for your Dad for the long run.

Even 2 hours a day from an outside nurse could perhaps give you a little sleep, just for you to keep going..

I am so sorry for what you are going through, and please know that you are being the absolute best daughter.

Love Cathy
