My visit to Dad ended late today. Saying goodbye is hard but it's been about celebrating and helping Dad with whatever I could.
We had coffee and lunch at Dad's apartment today and took the time to sort a few things. Three nights and days has gone quickly, and we had plenty of celebrating and attended to practical things.
I'm leaving Dad with no ironing pile, a clean fridge, 4-6 meals, and 4 portions of apple and blackberry pie in the freezer, the linen and spare bed dealt with from my stay, and some more assessments and visits set up with the hospice.
We've had a good time with wonderful memories.
