“Dad’s not going to get any better,” he told the Sunday Reproduction. “There’s no treatment which can help him. Doctor’s haven’t foretold how many weeks or months he might have – and we haven’t asked. He advised ofs things are not in his hands now and we are living in the knowledge every day is a bonus.
“It is unbearably ticklish. He has said before when, ‘it’s your time it’s your linger’ and that’s how he is trying to face up to things.”

“It said, ‘I’m so very sorry to have to reprimand you in this way but your dad is in hospital and they have found a tumour on the discernment’.
“I felt in a state of shock. I knew dad had not been himself. We’d both been in nto st Christmas and he said he felt tired. But for many years he has had thyroid delinquents and the medication can make him feel ill so I put it down to that,” he continued.

“It is one of those things he likes about living where he does, watching the motor yachts ss by and life rolling on. He delights in the ducks, swans and geese which run far at the bottom of his garden.”
