Rh...glad to hear you spirits are up. It's a tough road you are all traveling. Have the Drs had you talk to Hospice? They will help you and appoint a nurse to visit Steve's Dad as needed at home. My Mother wanted to be at home and she was. They had a nurses aide visit every day and bathe her and the nurse came as needed, about once or twice a week. I did have to administer some of the normal meds and shots, but it was all worth it. My prayers are with you all and I think there is a special place in heaven for the caregivers! :) (For me...I hope it's in the "Big Barn") ;)

My thoughts are with you. Keep the faith and do one day at a time. Glad you are holding up. The strength of all of us in this type of situation always amazes me. You will get through this.

Rh..beccajane's hospice idea is a good one. They came in for BG's stepmom's last weeks, and his dad had nothing but high praise for them.
Also my daughters prayer partner is a hospice nurse, and you could not find a more caring person.
I know it's hard, with all of the people that are depending on you, but try to take care of yourself.

RH:

I'm sorry to hear what Steve and you are going through. Althought it has been several years ago, I still remember when my parents' lives ebbed away. It is no fun. They both passed in their 60's and the way I see it I have less than 20 years left here. I should do the same as Steve and get on top of my health issues (obesity and high blood pressure). You only get to live once, and this is it.

I will keep Steve's father in my prayers as well as Steve, you and his family. This is not an easy time.

I'm getting into this a little late, but just wanted to thank everyone for all the support.

Before Tom(Steve's dad) passed away last Saturday, he had just been moved from the hospital to a hospice. They do that for the terminally ill. Steve & I never made it there, but Wanda(Steve's mom) said those people are utterly amazing at how they take care of their patients. She pretty much knew when they moved him in there on Friday that he probably wouldn't make it through the night... and he didn't. She asked about how long their patients are usually there and they said anywhere from 2 hours to 2 months. I know Wanda was so thankful for their care.

RH;

Thoughts and prayers to Steve, you, and his family over the loss of his father. I agree those who work in the hospice centers or on cancer floors of hospitals have an enormous amount of caring compassion and empathy.

I DO believe that there are angels on earth and Hospice caregivers are right up there! I'm glad everyone felt "taken care of". Blessings to all of you..........
