Last night Brad and I met with the local hospice, and we still decided its not for us. For some it's great, but their limitations don't fit with our therapies for Conner. But they are extroidinary people there, and since our home health nurse is in that same office they'll just tailor to our needs as far as the bereavement groups and counseling, and keeping his pain under control all while having the flexibility of doing home iv's or even a trip to doernbecher if we so chose. we really feel so glad to have that meeting done, and our minds made up for now. We'll reevaluate as things change, but for now we're good. and that is very comforting.
Brad has taken all of this week off so he can spend time with us as a family and to try to manage the stress and grief he's going thru at this time. like me, it comes and it goes, and some days are great and others it is a fight to even get out of bed. so please pray for him that this weekend can help him to feel refreshed. Usually I'm worried about our finances if he misses work because we're a single income family, but more than ever, and more surely than I've ever felt or said before...
He proved that to us without a doubt. He provides.
I pray you each enjoy your families for this memorial holiday weekend, and while we take time to remember those who've served for our country and to protect our freedoms...first and foremost take time to simply enjoy being alive. for family. for friends. and most of all, for God.
