This afternoon, we are going to be meeting with hospice. For now, he will be receiving palliative care until he gets worse. For those of you who may not know what palliative care is: it is doing whatever is necessary to make the patient comfortable without trying to cure a disease. It's very similar to hospice care, but the visits aren't quite as frequent.
I don't want to sound like I'm whining, but this has been very hard for both of us. I just wanted to let you all know why we aren't reading or commenting on your blogs as much as usual.
We will not be going to Grace's birthday party at UGA on the 20th because I don't want to leave my husband alone for that long. We hope everyone and everydog who goes has a really good time. Maybe we can go next year.
The dogs don't understand what's going on around here and I wish I didn't either. Penny is afraid to step on the oxygen tubes that are running all over the house and Poppy is constantly getting tangled in them. Patches is the only one who seems to ignore them. By the way, her hot spot is getting better, but it isn't totally gone yet.
Well, the girls and I will try to read your blogs when we can, but in the mean time, just know that we haven't fallen off the face of the earth.
Aire-hugs to all of you!
