Today my husband called as I was walking out the door to go to physical therapy and he was crying. He said, “You need to come up to the nursing home with mom now, the hospice nurse and social worker are going to talk to us.” I didn’t know what to say. I was shocked. I hung up and told my mother~in~law. She was confused, as I was, but proceeded to get ready and we were off.
That was yesterday. Today he has declined even further. If you know someone or have lost someone, you may know the stages of dying. It isn’t pretty, and it doesn’t come instantly. So here we sit, waiting. we have called the family. My sister~in~law and husband are on their way as is her son. They live in Delaware and SC.
His vitals keep dropping, and they are keeping him comfortable. That is all that we can do right now. I ask for prayers that this will go quickly and peaceably. He has suffered so much. The poor man has dwindled down to almost nothing. He has had a good long life, and I feel blessed to have been a part of it. Yes, my life is fuller knowing this God fearing man. He has made my life richer and fuller just to know him. Not to mention he fathered the husband I have loved for over half my life!!! lol Gotta love that!
Thank you all for your love and support before hand, and I will keep you posted as to what is going on. Your the best bloggy buds out there! xoxoxoxo
