The hospice crew followed me home yesterday from the hospital to set up all the equipment, hospital bed, etc in the livingroom, we drove in a snow storm. I wouldn't let myself panic since it was the first time since the wreck. The nurse from Hospice were coming an hour later with Jim being transported by ambulance. The male caregiver who has been helping me arrived soon after, he does have angel wings.
So he takes care of Jim while I rest during the day and then I do the nights, trying to keep Jim pain free. He's back to eating and drinking very little. And only a few moments of being lucid. But he can lay in the bed and hopefully come to realize he is home and time to let go. Another journey is waiting for him.
His older sister has come to realize how grave the situation is and I want her here with me. I have told her that this is something she needs to do. So friends will pick her up Sunday if Jim can wait for her.
I continue to read about the tragedy in Japan, so much suffering.
