Home with Hospice

Hubby has put up a nice battle for 3 years but his body has said that was enough. We are heading home from the hospital in the next day or 2 with hospice.  I have enjoyed the boards ey helped so much. I really have not met a better group, always full of information and encouragement.

Thanks

    Our Condolences, CB

    It's so very tough to watch the body failing after a long fight...truly heartbreaking:(

    It sounds like you have a good plan in place and may that time be filled with all that it can be for the both of you.  It's always tragic when a person passes on - and it's hard for those that remain.

    And it's hard from someone who stands off in the distance too...it's a stark reminder for us all...

    It seems each passing makes its own ripple in the universe...

    It sounds like you share alot of love and ahad awonderful live and time together...that doesn't happen for everyone, so when you see it, you know it.

    May the coming days provide you with the strength and fortitute to meet all the challenges that await you...

    My thoughts are with you

    I am so sorry that your husband is home with hospice, though hospice at the end of the day is a great blessing.

    I'm sure you will love and comfort him until the law of nature takes him away. 

    Both of you will be in my prayers. 

    Its hard, with Wolfen in the same place as you, waiting, hurting and loving.

    Blessings!

    So sorry

    So sorry to read this. But there comes ap time that the body says enough is enough, the mind might say different. I wish for you that the time remaining might be filled with peace, love and acceptance, saying goodbye is never easy but the memories stay forever .

    Both of you are in my prayers, hugs, Marjan

    Say It Now

    I'm sorry you are at this stage. My advice is to say what you have to say now. You never know how fast the end comes. Hospice is pretty good, mine was very responsive when it came to ordering a bed, getting the medications changed from pill to liquid, and helping with washing and bathing. My wife was only in hospice for 6 days before she passed.

    Best

    Praying

    I am praying for both of you during this difficult time. Three years is hard on our bodies and the battle with this awful cancer takes a real toll. Peace be with you and your husband. Jeff
