Emma, we are all thinking of you and hoping you will have less emotional pain as times goes by. So glad that Dougie is there for you.
He is building muscle and muscle weighs more than fat. So that should be considered. Of course, he may be having a little extra ice cream since he's "working out."
I think the busy work of preparing for a memorial or funeral gives family a purpose after a loved one's passing, when they really don't know what to do and are deeply grieving. It's when all that is over that you may experience an emptiness. But you will also have more experience to share with others.
Love ya, gal!
