Oh Goodness....

My Dad is being put on hospice care. He's lost 14 pounds this week and since he's not so violent now they're reducing his meds. I'm not sure what the next few weeks will bring but I'm trying not to hold my breath. I keep catching myself doing it though. I'm worrying about my Mom too. I don't know what the inevitable will do to her when it finally happens. She's going to be so lost without him. They will celebrate 50 years of marriage in August. I hope anyway but if he's getting worse, which he is, I don't want him to linger to just make it to another anniversary. I just don't know what to think at this point.


  1. You're in prayers, Karen, I'm so sorry you're dealing with all of this. It's just the most difficult thing.

  2. Thanks Kathy. I'd never in a million years think that my Dad would end up with dementia. I don't wish this disease on anybody or their families.
