You are someone I admire for so many things kadesma, and this just adds to the mix. Prayers for peace and strength for you and the tightest virtual hug I can send.

You are putting jewels in your crown, dear friend. You have my hugs and prayers for sure. Goodness knows you sure were here for me when I was having a bad time.
Kim's pop got really sick all of a sudden...liver cancer. We weren't able to make him comfortable here, and he didn't really want to stay here. He'd been paying for nursing home insurance, and expected to use it. We found him an excellent place right here in town, hospice took care of him, and he had lots of company. While he and his wife had lived in Florida for 20 years after he retired, they were from this area, and he had a ton of friends and relatives who had not forgotten him.

One day when I went to visit, toward the last, they told me they couldn't get him to eat. They did have him up and stapped into one of those wheel chairs with a desk in front, so I went in and fed him by hand, while I talked about my garden and all the things coming up in the greenhouse. At one point, he layed his head on my shoulder, and told me what a good girl I was. I never really thought he liked me that much, but that was just his way.

Thank you Connie,

When I need support last Fall you were right there.Thank you for that. Now I am here for you anytime you want to talk.

The rehab. home DH and I were in when we broke our hips wasn't the greatest. That is why I worked so hard to get out so we could come home. They would give each girl 6 or 8 patients to look after. Do the math..if they took 10 min. with each one and you were the last to use the call button.

Just Pray that when the time does come, you can find the right one for her.I saw my neighbor deal with her DH's Atomizers for 6 years. He was so out of it and a bed patient. I sure wouldn't want to see you do that. Her 8 years was so hard on her. She was 75 when he passed.

Please take very good care of yourself. I wish I were near to help you like I did her when she had other things outside the home that needed to be taken care of,
Love to you
Marge
