It’s late and I’m tired after a busy Saturday with no carers. That’s when I do the work of about four people or so who would usually work with Pádraig over a day. For the first time ever, I managed to organise the shower just on my own, with Pádraig helping. Something unthinkable not too long ago. It was also a day when I realised how much progress he has made with eating and drinking. Not just the amounts, or the consistency, but also the confidence with as good as no coughs. This evening, he had the best homemade food anybody could wish for, prepared by our friends and left here to help us getting over what are difficult and complicated times. More than usual.
