Hi again

Just a thought - I remember my Dad lost his appetite a few times but It did improve again.... (I don't think there was anything particular which helped but it just naturally picked up.). Thinking of you x

Hi Jane,

Not sure if this will be helpful, but I was thinking back to when my Dads appetite wasn't so good. I don't know if your Dad is old fashioned or not? At the beginning, my Dad would only eat the 3 main meals. If he missed one, he would wait until the next. I could not get him to eat when he wanted to eat. It had to be at breakfast, dinner or tea. I found that quite a big hurdle. Now, if his appetite is low and he fancies, say, a Mars bar, he would have one, whatever time of day. I know this isn't really a suggestion as such, I just wanted to mention it to you.

The passing of my Dad

Postby Janiebobs » Tue Jan 27, 2015 12:31 am

Hi everyone,
With great sadness I have to tell you that my lovely dad died last Tuesday after a bravely fought battle. Luckily he was peaceful and he did not appear to suffer any pain.
Fortunately I have been able to take long term sick leave so I was able to support my parents during this difficult time.
Luckily soon after my last post dad got transferred to a Pallative ward in the local hospital Dad had previously told his MacMillan nurse he had wanted to die in hospital as he didn't think my mum could cope if he died at home. The staff on ward were so accommodating and I stayed over for the last few nights.
The next big hurdle is on Friday which is Dad's Funeral.
Thank you for all the advice and support.

Jane
