Hello, GMOOSE2 ~~~
You have always been a loyal comrade of mine here, and our paths have crossed on many posts, over time.
I wanted you to know that I am sending you my 100% support, from across the miles.
In regard to HOSPICE ~~~ some my closest friends and relatives have directly benefited from HOSPICE services.
In all of these cases, I can sincerely say HOSPICE care workers showed unwavering dedication, compassion, support, empathy, counseling, and skilled care.
It can provide an integral "extra" level of support in every setting ~~~ in one's home, in a skilled care center, or in a HOSPICE center.
I have appreciated the individualized services that I have seen, based on each person's needs. I hope this is your experience, as well.
Above all else, I am mindful of you. I have been thinking of you since reading your post.
This quotation from Minnesota novelist Garrison Keillor, author of LAKE WOBEGONE DAYS and A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION, captures my sentiments best, to share with you:
"One never has to look far ~~~ to see the campfires of gentle people."
It's a fellowship here, GMOOSE2 ... a brotherhood.
I can see determination in your post --- your proactive steps ---- your tenacity.
My favorite words written in your post? "I expect to be here for a long time."
You've got others thinking of you, GMOOSE2 ~~~ and I am just one of many here, who are thinking of you.
May your courage be undaunted,
Cyclone ~~~ # Iowa State University
