After a long illness my dad finally found peace this morning.
I have to get to London somehow.
I don't know when I'll be back. Sorry.

UPDATE: Richard is taking the trouble to drive me down on Monday and then take the train back up (I need my car there in order to get around but can't drive such a long distance alone) and Carol has kindly offered me a bed for the duration as well as any extra help that my mum and I might need. I'll probably be gone a couple of weeks.
Thank you everybody for your kind wishes, both in the comments here, through emails, and on Facebook.
