2015 can go away now....  
As some of you were aware, my father had been nearly an invalid for several years, our lives revolving around him not being able to be left alone, planning vacations in shifts, not even all of us able to go out to dinner together, etc.. About six weeks ago, he ended up in hospital, from there to a rehab facility, and then 4 short days under hospice care. He died on Sunday.

I'm taking the next two days as bereavement leave from work, and as chance would have it, my vacation was already scheduled to start Monday. Good chance, I think having a week to spend with friends is probably exactly the best thing.

big hugs to you - I'm very sorry for your loss.

It's amazing how the final days and weeks you have with a loved one can both seem to go *so* quickly and at the same time, feel like time is standing still.

I'm glad that you have vacation scheduled - you need some time to figure out your new "normal" after the last 6 weeks.
