Hello Marsha I am so glad that you were able to get rest. I started FMLA on Monday. It is nice to be able to care of Paul and not work. Albeit a huge task anyway. Paul is declining he cannot eat anymore he has had violent vomiting and now can only take small sips of liquid. Paul is very stubborn and finally agreed to fentanyl patch for pain. That has been helping greatly and it also helps me not to feel helpless when he moans. Well the new norm is a process and everyday is a new adventure. I hope Ernie is feeling better with his hip and I hope that he stays pain free with his neck tumors.i am glad that he will be home with you soon. Blessings Monica

Since I have not heard back from you I am assuming that Paul is no longer in pain. I am sorry for your loss. Now you will have to reinvent yourself. You have been a caregiver for many years and have gone thru hell and back but you will find joy out of life again. Give it time and you will find your way. God Bless You! Marcia

Hello Marcia Your last message made me think and realize how life was Changing so rapidly. The decline for Paul was very sad. Paul died on May 13th. I am sorry I was not in touch with you but he was Such a handful and fought death until the end. I hope you are doing ok and I did not forget about you. And is your husband still hanging in there? Blessings on this fine Saturday. Monica

Hi Monica: My husband died May 22. Had hospice for 3 weeks plus help from my daughter. I am sorry that you had to go through what you did with your husband. We both had no idea of the aftermath would be. We were together 55 yrs and now they seem to want to erase him.You have a tremendous amount of paperwork. Then we have to go into this next portion in  our life. Nobody gave us instructions on what to do when you lose your spouse. I did find a greaat book called MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN BEFORE . How suffering transform us. It has helped me. The emotional roller coaster is hard but I know we can both get through it. I want to come out better after a while.I hope you will progress with becoming a new you. Let me know how you are doing. Nobody knows what this is like until they have to go through it. I try to stay positive when I am low and reflect on the number of people going through this same thing.
