Lilly: Coping

Lilly: Coping

Kavana stays at Dad’s side 24/7.

It was inevitable that there would be a shift in pace, everything in the last few months has been so full on,  but God I wish it was ANYTHING other than this.  Dad… out of all of us he is the weakest with his health but he is mentally, spiritually, the strongest.  I haven’t slept… I’m trying to get Kavana to at least have an hour’s rest but he won’t leave Dad’s side.  And I won’t ask him to either.  I have to be strong for the kids but even for me, I had to excuse myself to the bathroom and I just broke down and cried.  Surely, this cannot be the end.  My thoughts are all scattered at the moment, I’m sorry.  The song, Dad wrote for his own Father when he died and it’s just so hauntingly beautiful… it’s all that Kavana can do, is just sing that sing back to back, he doesn’t eat, nothing.

Tavita wants to sing Dads song at the Ex Factory finals… I don’t know.  I’m not sure I even want them to carry on but I know that Dad would have wanted them to.  So I will send them off and wish them the best.  I have to get back to Kavana now, and try and get him to eat something.  It’s going to be a long night ahead.
