    Ray, You made me smile when I read the part about the remote. Not because you were upset, but because I went through that phase of losing things and putting things in the wrong place. Again, I was told it's all normal. I tried to put a half gallon jug of milk in the cupboard. The only reason it didn't wind up there is because it was too tall for the shelf! Otherwise it might still be there! Ugh. Sounds like Allen ...

      PP So sorry to here about the Duke. It's good that he's forcing himself to eat. The thought of a feeding tube would scare me, too. This demon cancer is like a roller coaster ride. I remember feeling so hopeful and happy when hubby would ask for something to eat, open his eyes to watch Gunsmoke, hold a conversation it's his kids. I always had hope, always celebrated the good days, then...the rollercoaster would swi...

        PP How's the Duke (and you) doing? Marge

            Ray Thinking about you. Hope you're doing ok. I don't shout...although I feel like it sometimes. If I were to do that in the house it would scare my pup, if I did it outside, the neighbors would think I'm nuts. I sing instead...very loudly...not very well. But it's very therapeutic for me. I'm glad your son lets you talk. Sometimes you don't want people yakking away at you, you just need to be able to say what's...

              Hello Ray, Woke up this morning and turned over to face Don's side of the bed somehow thinking I'd see him. I, too, have had to remind myself now and then he is not coming back. But, he will always live on in my heart. Grieving is a unpredictable process. Sometimes it's one step forward and then two steps back. I'm ok as long as I keep busy, but some sometimes it's like I'm frozen to the chair and I have to force...

                Lisa, You're right about Ray and his history with Heken. Hubby's sister lost her husband of 54 years a few months before hubby passed. I was married to Don a mere 3 years. Not much history to reflect on. Sometimes I feel like the last year of his life wiped out the good memories, especially the last 5 months. My caretaking wasn't verbally appreciated by hubby, and taken for granted by his family. If not for the help...

                  Lisa My hubby gave in and gave up. I tried to talk to him about it, but he never replied. The last month of his life he barely spoke, and never to me. Just laid there in the hospital bed, only speaking when he needed to urinate. Meds were administered in silence. I was reassured that it was common at that point toward the end, but it hurt, hurt a lot. You know, I kept wondering how I would have behaved if the role...

                      Ray, Something in the photo must have triggered something deep inside you. Give it time. You'll probably be able to take it out again when you are further along the grieving process. I was wearing Don's wedding band on my right hand. Had to take it off because seeing it and remembering it being on him at the end was too much. I hope one day I can handle it. Marge
