Update on my dad.

Dad is all signed up for hospice now. He will see a home nurse once a week, get his prescriptions through them and his oxygen through them. He has no more worries about anything. If he doesn't feel good, they just call the number that is on the fridge. It's really a nice program and some of the clients are in it for years before they are close to the end. This is going to help my mom out in the long run, because she kept forgetting to call in his oxygen and his pills. So less for her to worry about. They are going to see about getting mom on it too, because she has congestive heart failure and dementia, but not as easy to get on as lung cancer. So we'll have to wait and see. This is not a sad day for us, but a good day. They will b e taken care of and that's what's important.

Hugs, Patt
