Regrets, Dad is no more

Hello all,

Regret to inform you all that Dad passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday afternoon – 21st April, 2023, at around 3.45 pm. Just around noon we were sharing a laugh as he didn’t want to eat breakfast/lunch and kept saying “tomorrow”. So I laughed and asked if it was his exit strategy. We fed him a liquid lunch and then he seemed to settle down, with very regular breathing.

Do remember him fondly and smile. He was not one for grieving or sadness, lived life to the full. If you’re a drinker, have a couple of drinks in his name, if you’re not, toast him with tea/coffee/whatever 🙂 Hugs all around. Peace be with you.

RR Status Update

Hello all readers/friends/fellow bloggers!

Dad was in and out of hospital 3 times in January/February and had some minor endoscopic surgeries. He was scheduled to have a couple more, but then got fed up and refused to have anything more to do with hospitals.

It’s been two months that he’s been homebound with spells of down time. He sometimes resumes reading the newspaper and doing his beloved crosswords. Has not shown interest in turning on the computer or returning to blogging. His phone is for the most part, on silent and with me.

I cannot tell you all if he will ever come back to the blog. 🙂 Wish you all well.
