    Hello Wow.   I'm sorry that you have had this experience.  My experience with Hospice was much different.   Someone came everyday except the weekends, and I had to call a couple of times during the night for help.   I never had to call, but someone recommended an organization to me called "Visiting Angels" that provides respite care on a volunteer basis.  Again, I'm not sure t...

      Thank you for sharing this good news.   Ever since I read your original post, I was thinking of you and praying for the best.  Sometimes it is hard for me to read this board, so it is such a good feeling to hear good news like this. Happy Easter Connie

        Hi Jennifer It is so interesting that you commented on the story of Lazarus. Today, as I sat in church, as a new widow, the reading gave me such a good feeling. I had a good day, and I feel like I am maybe going to be ok

            Also was important to my husband to be at home. Hospice care was critical for this to happen. There was no way I or our kids were going to leave his side during his final days, and truth be told, it was much more comfortable for us. We have a big German shepherd dog that had not ever been in the house before. She was my husbands buddy and went everywhere with him. During the last week, she sat outside the door...

              Hi Tessa: I am so sorry for your loss - I wish  you peace. Don't stress about not having visitors.  I, too, at the end, asked for no more visitors.  I did it because I knew my husband did not want them, but I also did it for the visitors themselves.  Frankly speaking, it is difficult sometimes to see and I didn't want that memory for them.   I think the most scary thing for me can be b...

                Hi Glitzy First, I'm so sorry for your loss.  And I'm sorry your husbands family makes it 'about them'.  I totally agree with you, this is hard and lonely time.   My husband died in November, also from GBM and as difficult as the last months were for him and our family, I wish I could have just one more day with him.  But, I am trying to move forward - I am also looking for a new house. ...
