I finished reading all the trilogy of The Lord of the Rings. It took me about half a year.
When I finished the second volume, I was a little tired of this novel, and I read "Mirkwood", a kind of fan fiction whose content was related
Though I was busy with caring for my father, staying at a hospital gave me some free time.
When my father was sleeping, I had nothing to do.
Every time I had to stay at the hospital, I brought in LOTR. In a word, this novel comforted me when I watch my father getting worse.
Now my father is diagnosed as late-stage cancer. All I hope is that my father spend each day as peacefully as possible. It may sound srange, but I don't feel sad. I think my father lived a pretty happy life, and Mom has been nursing him for a long time. What I care most now is my mother.
I'll do whatever I can to keep her happy and healthy.
病院通いは続いていますが、転んでもただでは起きない私。The Lord of the Ringsを持ち歩き、時間があれば少しでも読み（寝る前が多いですが）ついに３巻（といっても日本語の文庫版だと９冊分）読破しました！
