If I posted the photos of diary entries can you help me . I have worked some of it out . Mom originally thought he took to his bed after lifting something heavy but it looks like he coughed up blood and had pain in his back .

Thank you everyone my dad died five years ago but I only just discovered this writing . We never really new what was wrong as he refused to go to drs or hospital until it was too late and my mom has memory loss that I didn't realise how bad it was till after he died and worry I didn't know the whole story

Redskyandrainbows67 Sun 10-Feb-19 21:33:49

‘Tomorrow disagree’ on the first photo second para

Redskyandrainbows67 Sun 10-Feb-19 21:35:21

Could the last line start ‘emergency’?

Milly90 Sun 10-Feb-19 21:37:07

If op im sorry flowers

Pic three looks like something mentioning harry and Carol? Sorry if that's completely wrong

Pic two- felt very bright outwardly and blood doesn't look good
Line 5 of pic two so difficult but maybe something like "return when (something) I be (illegible)... sorry OP xx I hope you get answers soon

PicklePumpkinPie Sun 10-Feb-19 21:38:41

So sorry to hear about your Dad.

Could the first line be 'Serious start to day'

kerstina Sun 10-Feb-19 21:38:56

Thank you I think the word suffering is in there so yes could be emergency thank you . No don't think Harry would make sense

PerpendicularVincent Sun 10-Feb-19 21:40:46

Sunny start to day. Had coffee and cornflakes with plenty of milk for breakfast.
