Well it is Wednesday evening 11 PM and I am spending the night with Jim at the hospice facility. This morning, Jim took a nose dive and started to decline fast. His anxiety and pain was not being controled even with the increase in meds. Jim said this morning that he wasn't going to make it back from this one. Yesterday he started having a little rattle in his throat. Today it was worse and the apnea was increasing. The nurse said that Jim has anywhere from a few hours to a day or two. He is comfortable now but unresponsive to touch and voice. His digestive system has completely shut down and he is very cold to the touch. His oldest daughter and two sons are flying in from Seattle tomorrow, I pray they are in time to say good bye. My daughter said I was so strong (and several of you have said it) but I really am not. I am saving my break down until after. I want Jim to pass peacefully assured I will be ok.
