View Full Version : Hello all...

28th January 2011, 19:50
Been looking in for a while but have finally plucked up the courage to say Hi!

I am Carly and I am 37....I live in Sherborne, Dorset with my hubby and 3 teenage children.
My Dad Richard, 67 years old now was diagnosed with MND last July but has had symptoms for 2 years or more.
My Dad lives opposite me in the road which is great as he lives on his own as my Mum left him 16 years ago now, so we are primarily his carers.

E-mail me or contact me through here!

Love to all

I didn't know where else to post this so I thought I would reply to my 1st post.

My Dad, Richard died peacefully on Friday 18th March at 1.45 a.m. in St Margaret's Hospice in Yeovil.
He deteriorated quickly since Christmas and started to lose hope I think. He drastically went downhill last Sunday and by Thursday morning we managed to get him into a hospice. His oxygen levels went down to 54%. He drifted off into a sleep and never woke up. We didn't want to try and resuscitate him and prolong his suffering and pain and he passed away very peacefully, just how he wanted.
I feel empty, cold and numb. But he has no more pain.
The Hospice were compassionate yet professional, in his last few hours and since in death.
Sorry to put this on here but didn't know where else to put it. If it needs to be moved or removed I will understand.
I hope there is a cure soon, so others to do not have to go through this.

R.I.P. Dad, gone but never forgotten x x x
