After starting the care of Hospice I quickly settled into their routine and structure. My nurse whose name is Angel is just that-warm, sweet, and kind, but smart too. We've gotten along well. I was able to start on a lot of the same meds I had been taking but they bumped up my pain meds right away.
What I've noticed over the past few weeks is that as soon as a complaint is rendered by me, its quickly addressed by them. Meds are taken away, added or exchanged. My pain has steadily been increasing and we have been adjusting accordingly. It's been tough because of how much it changes from day to day. I may be feeling fine one day and see people and then next day I'm filled with pain and unable to do much at all. I am supported in all my daily needs by those around me. I feel myself getting weaker as the days go on.
It is tough to answer questions on how I am doing as it changes moment to moment. At one point we thought it would be hours or days until I passed. This week I had a boost after my brother Lee came to visit. Currently I feel the pain is increasing and I am more uncomfortable. We are still sharing our moments together with family and friends. The time will be whatever God's plan is for me.
I feel that I have been very blessed and I am so grateful to everyone for all the prayers, support and love along this journey.
All shall be well...
