Mr FD has gone to sit by his father’s bedside tonight. FIL is not expected to live another 24 hours.
The children all went to see their Grandfather this afternoon. It is a very strange time. I can not speak for the emotions that Mr FD must be experiencing, but our children were denied a proper relationship with their grandfather due to his own attitude and treatment of the family, so they feel rather disconnected from him. I feel sorry for him as he is now suffering, and I do not think anyone should suffer in such a manner, but I have no real emotions about him. Well, not those of a positive kind. He is, was, a terrible husband, and an even worse father and nothing more can be said for the man.
SIL asked that FIL be given stronger pain medication this afternoon and the nurse replied that he couldn’t have morphine as “he might become addicted”! He should live so long! I am sure he will have something stronger before the evening is out. Sometimes you wonder if people think before they speak.
