I've thought about you both this holiday season. It's nice to know that the staff is caring. Please take care of yourself and enjoy your time together.

Elfstar, thinking of you and your hubby... stay close and be together and let them help you... There are special places in heaven for Hospice workers, I do not know how they do it, but they do. We are thinking of you. Hugs

Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes - you help me realize that I will get through this tough time and go on to help somebody else do the same. You've all been in my shoes in one way of another!

Jim's hanging in there for now, I'm off to bed cause I'm BEAT!

Keeping you both in my prayers. I too have the upmost respect for Hospice angels, they were a blessing to our family while dad was at their home.

Remember to also take care of yourself, get rest, drink your water and have some healthy meals to keep up your strength.

Elfstar I am SO SORRy for your loss. I know words aren't meaning much right now but please know you are being prayed for. I am grateful for the fact he isn't suffering anymore. It is awesome that you were able to get married, go to WDW once more and have another Christmas together. Please hold onto those memories in these tough days. Please keep us posted as to how you are doing. All my thoughts and prayers are being sent your way.
