Just a quick post here because I’m currently at my parents’ home while my mother is in hospital.

I feel I can be a lot more useful to Dad than I was before by answering the phone and the door and things like that, and it takes some of the stress away from him. I’m an only child so I’m glad I can do little things to help out, especially as he says he feels as if he’s on the Titanic and the boats have all gone without him.
