at home, at rest

Every effort made in the last couple of days was worth it ten times over, watching my dad arrive home yesterday. A few minutes after the rescue men had carried him into his own bed, he realised where he was. Looking at the wall at his bedside, where pictures of us kids are hung, his features relaxed to absolute comfort. The soft humming noises coming from him were clearly intented to express deep satisfaction. He fell asleep almost instantly and he looked peaceful and content.
