So glad you checked in, Beth. You've been on my mind lately. I guess no news is good news. Extremely glad to hear you are doing better. It's hard to take care of yourself when you're not sure what that entails. I'm praying that you will continue to thrive.

hugs,
June

Miss Beth it's great to hear from you, and I'm happy to here you are doing better. ~~ Continue to reach out for help as needed...I pray that you be given strength every day.

Take care, stay warm, and if it's not to much trouble....Would you mind posting a picture of one of those carrot cakes sometime?

I think we are in the final stage. On Tuesday, Rich quit eating and has not been suffering the unpleasant consequences of eating any more. The medicine is keeping him comfortable. He has found he can sleep sitting up, with head phones on. We both operate on the top floor, so I can keep an eye on him. He rests on the couch. I am either at my sewing machine or computer or sitting with him holding his hand. He listens to the radio or a book on CD through the head phones, although the book requires too much concentration on his part. A few friends are coming over today and tomorrow, and his brother arrives tomorrow night. He thinks he is losing his ability to speak. He looks like he is 90 years old. I am surprised at his rapid decline in the past week.

Thank you are all your positive energies.

Love, Beth

Praying for peace for both of you. It's nice that you can be together even though it is so hard to watch someone you love declining.

My dear Beth, I agree with the others in thanking you for letting us in and this time and also that it is hard to know what to say. You have both shown so much courage and love for each other during this time. Know that my thoughts, prayers and love are on their way to you now and always.

Dearest Beth: My heart is aching for you now, as it has during this whole journey. As the others have said, know how much we love you, and support you and Rich. Also know that you can come here and cry, scream or anything else you need, now and forever.

I am so sorry.

Love,
June

Beth, I'm so sorry to hear this. It's been a long loving journey for both of you. Sadly, I understand and know just what you are going through at this time. You are in my heart and on my mind.
