Hospice

Hello friends and family,

We are officially in Hospice now.  Monday night was a pretty bad night.  Dad was getting out of bed every hour or so to go to the bathroom, which also meant that he was falling quite a bit.  He wasn't very strong and had a hard time even with Mom's help and support.  At this point I don't see many new bruises but he does have a cut above his right eye.  Because of this and because he continued to be very weak, Mom called Hospice for help. 

We have moved a hospital bed into the dining room where we can all keep an eye on him and surround him with our presence as much as we are surrounding him with our love. 

Dad hasn't been very alert today though he sometimes wakes up for a few moments, he knows that Lyndsey and Jason are on their way into town and he is excited to see them.  He knows Cindy and Shelby came by with hugs and bright smiles and he's said hello to his sister Jan who is here now also. 

We have nurses coming by in a few hours and we will post more information at that time since we are still trying to get a gauge on how things are going.
