Being in our own bed was the best for us. He really didn't want a hospital bed. Our hospice nurse said to both of us after our daughter kept asking for hospital bed .." When your Dad asks for one or when he is no responsive, then and only then will we bring it in" She never asked again. At first I wanted one, afraid of allowing Jim to pass in OUR bed. He really was unresponsive 24 hours, but being in our bed allowed me to lay next to him anytime I wanted to, hold him anyway I wanted to, and talk to him anytime I wanted to. Looking back I would not change a thing. The last 15 minutes when his heart was racing and he was running a fever,I laid down next to him, covering him with part of my body, hand over his heart just telling him to relax, I was there for him, his daughters were there for me,just relax, instantly his heart slowed down, and we helped him pass his way, in our bed, so peaceful.
Had my biopsy yesterday, swollen and very sore today after a restless night. Doctor say he didn't see anything suspect but it did appear that I had trauma to my neck muscle at sometime. about a week for results and two day to do nothing but relax..gonna work on that one, maybe the pain pills will help.
