The last post I made on this blog was Anzac Day, which was roughly three weeks ago. It was also the day my Father was diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer and went into hospital. Complications caused by that cancer ended my Dad’s life early last week, only two weeks later. He was 67 years old.
As you can imagine (or if you’ve been through something similar) this has been a shock to all our family and friends, particularly considering how healthy Dad had been for most of his life. Naturally it’s also made us all look at our own lives and how we’ve been living them and all I can say is don’t take anybody you care about for granted because they may be gone tomorrow.
We visited Dad every day he was in hospital and then we had to organise and attend his funeral, which explains the lack of posts in the last month or so. Hopefully I’ll start posting again soon.
