Hello, beloved friends and family.  I am so pleased to say that Bear is now comfy and snoring away at Providence Mt St Vincent in West Seattle.  They took excellent care of him after his initial stroke and as he rehabbed from several events over the past three years.  The staff at Virginia Mason hospital were outstanding, and we are so thankful for their care of him over the past month.  To be able to now move Bear so close to home AND have him surrounded by people who model the compassionate care inspired by the Sisters of Providence is a true gift.  Bear has not even wanted to have much more than a sip of water today, so if that remains his decision we will do our best to match his bravery and usher him on his way soon.  If it's possible to imagine, his big Bear heart grows bigger and brighter each day.  Love to you all, bc and Anna
