Just wanted you to know the cookies are baked, decorated and delivered.It went ok but I do not finding baking relaxing so doubt if I will ever be the baker my mom is.The cookies do taste good
I had to take my mom for some Xrays so we took the cookies and stopped by the vets office and they were all surprized to see her and came out to say hi and give her hugs. I think it was nice for her to get out for as short of a trip as it was as sitting at home all day has got to be so boring when you are someone that was as active as she was.
Today we met her actual hospice nurse , Sam. She is a good match for my mom as she too is a big animal lover and has lots of pets which gives them a common thing to talk about as they get to know each other.She is kind of an earthy persoan and I like that. I was going to lock the dogs up but she said she did not mind them and would rather I leave them out. We all seem to like her. She is going to see about getting my mom on some steroids to help with the shoulder pain which may be inflammation as the bone scan showed nothing in that area and to just stimulate her a bit and maybe get her eating /drinking a bit more. The bone scan did show something in the lower spine and mid spine could be cancer could be arthritis.
The hospice care is home hospice, I do not think you could get my mom away from her home. My dad is here as are the dogs and cat, all her things and neighbors so this is where she will be the happiest and that is important.
I do hope Stan managed to have a good day.I am really pulling for him to get some more quality time to spend with you and the boys. Andrew is a senior, correct? I want to see Stan make it to graduation as it will mean so much to both of them.Stan and you are always in my prayers.
Jan, know I am sending lots of prayers your way too.I am glad that Bud got a good nights sleep and I hope they can keep him comfortable. I am glad that Hospice is such a help to you as this is too difficult to not have help like them there.
Renea you and your husband are also in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I hope that your hospice team is as good as ours seems to be as I think it can make a huge difference in the end of life. Maybe the chaplin or social worker can help you with the rest of the family as Hospice is as much for the family as it is for the person with cancer.
Well I had better go as soon all the trick or treaters will be out. Happy Halloween to all. JanMarie
