My name is Carol, and I would like to offer you my support. I feel for you and your family. This is a very hard, emotional, and exhausting time for you all. Having Hospice will help 'you' some also. They were here for 2 months,last year, to help me with my Dad. Just having another person in your home, even for a little while, can take away some of the stress and lonliness for you. Find out what all Hospice has to offer Jim and use it. Sometimes people think we already know everything, and don't tell us about the simplist things. I used to walk the nurse out to her car and that's where I would see different supplies she would be delivering to other people. I would ask and it was given.
You and your son, Jim, will be on my mind as I go through my day taking care of my husband. We are all alone here too. It is good to have someone to talk to.
Blessing to you and your family,
