Thank you Scott for sharing your thoughts. I’m equally sorry for your struggles, both past and present, well, & future for that matter. 😊
I know when we got the offer for hospice, the first time, it was absolutely shot out the window. The second offer was no easier than the first, but much needed. In just a few short days the stigma was evidently removed from both our minds. I will forever be grateful to Emerald Coast Hospice for what they did for our family, exactly how I feel about Mayo now. I wish there were some way to advocate for Hospice agencies to remove the stigma entirely. I’ll have to look into that….
Your wife sure was a lucky woman to have you care for her. My caregiving adventure didn’t amount to as much as yours, isn’t it a blessing to be able to care for the one you love (in a way you would like to be cared for)? To this day, I still look back and think how lucky I was to have that special time with my Granny. I don’t remember the bad, only the good, & it instantly brings a smile to my face. I sure do miss her, as I know you do your wife. They watch over us today and are eternally grateful for what was done for them through love, & one day you will be rewarded for that service!
