Beth, I don't know what to say except you are in my prayers. I realize that both of you have been through so much in the last months. You will remain in my prayers.

beth, there aren't words, really, to express the feeling in our hearts at this time, for the love and support we can only hope you know exists for you and rich.

Dear Beth,

Like the others, I just don't know what to say, other than thank you for sharing your life together with us. I am praying for peace and strength for you both. Only God knows how long you have left here together, but I pray that your time together remains as rich and full of life and love as it always has.

whew! I've had to call in the reinforcements. Rich is still able to stand and walk with assistance, but needs help with most tasks. And he doesn't want me out of his sight. I just emailed all my friends who have offered to sit with him and the first one comes today. My plan was to go to the local quilt show, where I am showing a baby quilt, but the sitter is coming about the same time as Hospice. So I will mow after my friend arrives and until Hospice gets here... The quilt show runs three days, so maybe I can get there tomorrow.
We are in transition from oral morphine to a morphine patch and the patches did not arrive yesterday, to add to the stress. He only has one more morphine pill. He can't swallow the other medicines so he is supposed to be getting a cream that has the medicines in it. I have to wear gloves when applying it so I don't get zonked!

Thanks for the prayers and positive thoughts!!!!!

Beth, You can also ask for Roxanol, liquid morphine, it's a sublingual form, fast acting.

Beth, your "reinforcements" here may not be physical, but we are walking with you every step of the way.

Sending you love and hugs and crystal light to help you do what you have to do.


Wine is the food that completes the meal.
