I'm sorry, Seaspray. They will be of such help. If you want to contact me you know how. Love to you, my friend.

You are always so thoughtful. I value our friendship.

Thank you very much Chrysalis Angel.

You know I value you too, Seaspray. I'm sorry this is such a sad and difficult time for everyone. Your loved one will hopefully be comforted and helped through this process. Some people don't get hospice involved soon enough. I'm glad they have enlisted their aid for her. Hugs to you, Spray.

The sun light is starting to come up behind the mountains. it's freezing outside. We just got back home.

We got the call at 3:15 to say she wasn't breathing and so we went right over.

The Hospice nurse came over and we stayed until the funeral director and his assistant left.

I just canceled 2 previous comments in which i was ranting about what I perceived to be a debacle with the hospice set up. Moot points now.

Anyway...I have to say I like the way the hospice nurse interacted with my m-i-l and I am glad she was there. The funeral directer was great too.

At least she's not suffering anymore. She was only home a little more than 12 hours. I think that she had to be more ill than she was letting on and even one of her docs said he was amazed that she was doing all that she was. The dehydration was just too hard for her to rally back from with all the treatments and physical challenges she was facing/enduring.

Even On Easter she told me she wanted to live. She didn't look good then. She was one of the most gentle people ever and yet she really fought this with a warrior spirit.

So, so sorry, SeaSpray. Words are not enough to express my condolences. Know just that I am thinking of you and your family.
