As it turns out, it was God guiding me on this one. I had decided not to go to my sister's memorial because I didn't want to leave my husband alone. He wanted me to go but I just had a bad feeling about it. Well my husband wound up in the hospital and now we are talking with hospice. We'll know tomorrow about whether he is going to go to the hospice center or come home or what. Apparently he has to meet certain criteria to be accepted at the hospice center. I believe there would have to be a prognosis of 2 - 3 weeks to live. I don't know if he meets that criteria but I do know he is having trouble swallowing even water and is only eating a couple of spoons of soup or a taking a few sips of water. Now he also has a low grade fever. He also seems congested. On the bright side - he loves the morphine. I think I'd like some.
Hope we can get things settled tomorrow. I'm hating sleeping in this chair. It's supposed to be be a lounge chair but I guess I don't weigh enough to keep it flat. It's a back killer. We found the family lounge but my daughter had a long drive in and I'm letting her use the sofa in there. The doctors will get here early and we want to be here for that. My daughter is in the medical field and she has a whole bunch of questions. She also wants to reade the charts. I could do that but I don't understand the lingo.
He's coughing an awful lot so they are going to give him a breathing treatment now.
Keep the prayers coming please.
(((Hugs & Love))) to you all for being so supportive.
