Carole's husband, Jack, died in September of 2015. Since then she has been living in an Assisted Living Apartment in Colorado Springs. She has done well in general, though her arthritis catches up with her once in awhile. Several weeks ago, we began to notice a decline in her health. After a minor surgery was needed, she began to decline rapidly. She has an unknown condition that causes severe cyclical pain. And she has lost most muscle strength. We have brought in hospice to manage the pain. This may be the last part of her journey. Or it may not be. As I (Lynn) sit by her bedside, I am starting to read her books again. It's like having little conversations with her, even though she isn't able to communicate a whole lot in person right now. We will try to keep you updated
