Absentee Blogger

I'll be missing from your feeds for a bit.

My father in law entered hospice Tuesday night. Finally, he's comfortable, despite his perforated bowel. There is no satisfaction in having been correct that indeed, he is a dying man. I wish they'd done the CT scan sooner, but the powers that be had to come to that solution on their own schedule. For now, he's inpatient at the hospital, but wants to go home and I think that's the least we can do for him. As soon as the equipment is delivered, he'll be sent to his home to pass what little time is left with as much dignity as we can provide.

Thank you all for your words of encouragement. Y'all are pretty fierce people. I'll be seeing you all soon.

As you rightly say, there's no satisfaction in having been right. It's very frustrating.
Sending Reiki and loving thoughts to you for the coming weeks.
Take care.
