Hi, I just wanted to let you all know- Steve has accepted hospice at home. We successfully fought for his radiation treatments for pain management and his pain number went from 9 to 3. After his last day of radiation treatment, we asked for this. I had been dreading making the decision but in the end after a couple of falls because he forgot he was meant to be in a wheelchair (!), hospice decided itself and I could no longer cope on my own that made any sense.
I feel that we have made a positive decision, we have had the garden trimmed and mowed and its all looking especially lovely here in Texas just now and I look forward to spending some quality time in it with him.
I want to thank all those that mailed me- especially April-who finally worded it as moving forward and not backwards!
Could not have done it without you guys, and hope there is some good times ahead for us:-)
best wishes and kind thoughts
