Hospice

Its a horrible word. End of life care is so feared and so overwhelming.

Today, I am thankful that my grandmother finally called them. Initially we were under the impression that she had but that was not the case.

She called and she let them in.

I hope she keeps letting them in. It is so hard to see them suffering but today, today my grandfather will start receiving the pain medicines and care that will lessen his pain and hopefully will lift some of the burden from my grandmother.

It isn’t that I want my grandfather to die, I absolutely don’t. I want my grandmother to be able to spend the last few days with him in a way that they can both benefit from. I want my grandfather to be out of pain.

I know my grandmother’s heart is broken. If I knew that my time with the person that I love, would end forever, I would be destroyed. How do you say “Please don’t leave me.” “I love you” “You mean everything to me” to someone who is about to die? Pretty sure the person dying is having a worse time.

Anyway.

Today, I am thankful that end of life care and their availability and willingness to care for my grandparents.
