Happy Easter to all!

Our Hospice case nurse was just here and said if she had to guess how long Les has she would say hours. He is total unresponsive now and on heavy meds to make it more comfortable to breath. I have made a comfy nest next to his bed so I can spend this remaining time close to him. I do not want him to be alone when it is time for him to be alone when it is time for him to go to his eternal home. It has been a long journey, but taken with love and support from many people and the prayers of many more.


Sheila my prayers are with you and Larry. I know how it feels to be hit with the word Hospice and you may find that the early days will feel very intrusive with everyone coming and going, but please let them help you in anyway they can. The more they do for you the caregiver the more time you will be able to spend with Larry. We are in our 7th month with them and I can tell you the team we have had with hospice has been the greatest gift. Our journey is ending, while yours is just beginning so take care of yourself so you can be there later when you need the strength. My Dr told me this would be the hardest job I have ever done, but I have also found that we have been blessed to have this time to spend together and I am sure you will be as well.

May you find the peace to let God carry much of the load and just love each other now.

Hugs to you both,
Deb

What you are doing now will be the hardest thing you have done but it will also be the most enriching. To be with a loved one when they leave us is a great comfort when you will have to look back on it. For now you are where you should be with the person who needs you most.
