In the Hospice Unit.

Posted: November 5, 2013 in Uncategorized

Well its the 4th of November and its my sisters birthday and Mom is still in the Hospice unit here in Henderson,Ky. Shes going home tomorrow. I stayed with my Dad ten years ago for the last six weeks of his life at home when he was in Hospice. The people at Hospice are great people. My sister is determined to take my Mom home and take care of her. I will help of course. I have always been of the mind that if you have to do something you will find a way to do it. The old adage is “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”. I believe this to be true. I have been lucky in my lifetime to have known some “tough” women. Have never been a member of the camp that says that men are the dominant species. Think that women are much toughtr. My opinion of course. Anyway, tomorrow starts me down another path in what has been a very different kind of life. Runaway,Cowboy,Farmer,Soldier, and retiree. My Moms condition is reminding me of my own mortality. I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep….HJ
