Unfortunately though his rest was cut short, My Dad has not been well for quite some time, he had Vascular dementia and although he had been in a nursing home for 18 months, physically he did very well. But over Christmas he deteriorated quite quickly, we knew it was different this time and me and my sister visited more and tried to encourage him to eat and drink, but it became apparent he was giving up. On 12th January with me by his side he peacefully died. Even though you are prepared for the worst when it comes it is still a shock. Last Wednesday we buried him with my Mum and brother and I am sure he would be happy, he had finally escaped from the nursing home and was back 'home'.
When I gave my studio up in December I had thought I would be able to visit my Dad more often but it was not to be. So here I am, Mr Wellydog has gone back to work and I am wondering what to do with myself? I am hoping this is just short term and the plans I had when I left my studio will still ultimately come to fruition, but for now, I think I will just potter a bit and try not to worry to much about what I should or shouldn't be doing.
So see you around......sometime
