Jeff's Hospice nurse, Emily met with us for the first time today. She will be looking in on him one or two days a week to check his vitals and help with any medications he might need. It is a comfort to have her overseeing everything. Hospice seems wonderful.
Bill and I will be staying in Danville through the end of the week depending on how things go. Today Jeff has kind of a goopy cough and is rattley (don't you love my medical terms?) so I'm not sure what's going on there. Hopefully that will clear and he'll have a better day tomorrow.
We are looking into some nursing care for Jeff so Cherene can get away for a few hours a few days a week. It's difficult juggling two busy boys and a very sick husband. I can honestly say I've never seen anyone perform such unbelievably demanding tasks with such grace and love. At the top of my list of things that I'm thankful for, is Cherene!
To all of you who have donated to Jakes ALS quilt raffle, thank you. You have made one brave little boy very happy.
I'm sitting on the front porch with Jeff, watching the cars go by. What a simple thing. I recommend it. How often in our busy lives do we do that? Just sitting, enjoying the moment, feeling the breeze and reminiscing.
Here comes the ride group...it's about to get crazy!
