It's Over

He quietly passed just before 7 last night. He had a gentle smile on his face and I imagine he saw his loved ones waiting on the other side.....

Waiting is the Hardest Part

When we left the hospital on July 15th they said 6 months.

When the hospice nurse did her assessment on the 20th she said 3 weeks.

When we took him to inpatient hospice due to a fall on the 22nd they said let's see what happens over the weekend.

When the doctor saw him Sunday the 24th he said 24-48 hours.

Today a new doctor said Thursday.

Waiting is the hardest part.

Where is She?

I have mixed emotions about sharing family health woes here on my blog. I am going to let you know what is going on so you understand why I have been away. I posted this on FB yesterday:



  • I forget that a lof of people dont know my husband's health situation. He was diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 1990. It went untreated. By 1998 he was diagnosed with cirrhosis. Again it went untreated. He ultimately was on liver transplant list but broke the rules numerous times and was kicked off. He had surgery in May and his body couldn't take the anesthesia. His liver is failing......
My husband will be 53 Sunday so this is all too soon. We lost his younger brother, and only sibling, last year on New Year's Day due to long running health issues. I am concerned about my Father-in-law. I assured him that I will be there for him to take care of him.

So there it is. Feel free to ask questions. I don't mind.
