Morning Jaci -
Kind of you to think of my wellbeing but it's fine - in actual fact, the feeling of possibly helping someone else, even if just for a nano second, helps somehow.
My dad moved downstairs & had a hospital bed and mum borrowed a pull down bed - it's really important that you look after yourself too - I know it's not necessarily what you want to hear but it really is true Jaci - can you source a temporary bed to sleep by his side? I understand completely your need to 'sleep' by his side and I'm not suggesting you alter this, but maybe a bed rather than a sofa might be a good idea? I can't remember what those beds are called - the ones that pull down/ push up easily that actually don't take up much room at all? If you think it will help, ask around or see if your daughter could ask on Facebook, etc? That's what we did for mum.
How's his eating? We got lots of lemonade ice lollies and pre-made jellies in for Dad, although that was nearer the end.
Another thing, as I'm thinking, was some oral moisture sticks to help dad feel that his mouth wasn't too dry or uncomfortable - I only say this Jaci as we had to order them from the chemist and therefore had to wait a few days, when, in your situation you just don't feel you can wait for anything....they were inexpensive but very, very helpful as we felt in some small way we were helping to care and showing our love for him x
Thinking of you (sorry for bombarding you with such a long post (again!))
Wishing you a gentle day
