A Quick Update

Hi-ya, guys. I just wanted to take a sec to update y'all on what's happening with us. First off, thank you so much for your continued support and caring messages. I appreciate them more than I can say. Bottom line, we're now doing hospice care in our home. This isn't the outcome we would've chosen, but we're blessed to have had so many years together. Sure, we would've liked to have had another 51 years of marriage... hey! we coulda made it into the Guinness book of world records... but no, alas, that's not to be. Things are kinda rough right now, but the hospice folks are a Godsend, and somehow, somehow, I'll make it through. I think. I dunno when.... or even if... I'll return to blogging. But if I can... I will.

Y'all take care of yourselves. And each other.

  9. Dear Susan, You and your family have been much in my thoughts lately. I have a great confidence in your strength and the indestructible love at the root of it. Your stability,compassion and good humor have helped me through some hard times over the years. Nothing so difficult as what you face now, but still, I'm here --hope you still have our address. If not, let me know here and I promise not to post or publish it.

  21. I have missed so much fighting my battles and a wildfire that wants to destroy my home that I have let everything drop.

  28. As someone who recently went through something similar, but with a parent, I know how many emotions you must be going through. I wish you so much love and support. Thank God for Hospice. They are so very kind, competent and helpful too. I don't know what I can do, but if you need anything I can help with, even an ear of a stranger/friend (is that a thing???), feel free to reach out any time.
