My Dad died last night.
My comfort is knowing he had the happiest days these last 2 months. Happier than he had had for years.
I am so grateful to his home care giver. She came in 6 hours a day for 6 days a week and made his life brighter and happier than anyone could remember for a long, long time. I cannot praise her enough.
Yesterday he was very confused....even during the day hours. His care giver came over yesterday on her own time to comfort him and help him! Last night at 11:30 pm he was calling to me for help. He had taken his oxygen off and was claiming the oxygen concentrator was trying to kill him. I calmed him down, put him back in bed, put the oxygen back on him. This morning he was gone.
