I understand your pain and guilt.
He wasnt healthy, but not debilitated, had ER surgery for an obstruction, home 2 months and recovering slower than I wanted when I found him on the floor. 3 long weeks in the hospital with all the ups and downs, finally signed a DNR, discussed hospice, he was dying and I knew it. During all this my ONLY sister (who lived with dad) ran off with someone she met on the internet. It was the absolute WORST 3 months of my entire life. She made an appearance at the funeral with the internet HUSBAND :imbar But before that she stopped at my dads bank and lawyer. I think he wouldnt have plummeted so quickly if not for the shock of her running off-
Its a little over a year now and I am still in a fog, cant beleive he is gone, I miss him with all I am. His house is empty and his car is in the driveway-I dont go there- I cant yet.
Im not one to give advice Ive beaten myself up over this till now, but I think I did the best I could by him till the end.
sorry for your loss
