A Quick Update

Just so you don't think I've done a disappearing act again: my FIL passed away on Wednesday 4th August at 2.05pm in Derby Hospital. He'd had to be re-admitted to the hospital that morning, due to a chest infection he'd developed not clearing up. His end was very quick, which left us all somewhat stunned, but also Blessedly peaceful. We were relieved that he'd suffered none of the excruciating pain usually associated with cancer and feel he left this life the way he wanted: without fuss and on his own terms.
What more could one ask?

The funeral service is tomorrow (Friday 13th) and we'll be spending the weekend with MIL, doing whatever she needs doing.

Will be back blogging again when I feel a bit more sociable.

Take care all.
