Blessings Keep Coming!

After the sisters left to go home for Georgia it was so quiet…

Their laughter and sweet voices are so welcomed… On Wednesday we had a visit with the Palliative Care Team… at the VA Hospital…

After being reassured by the at VA Nutritionist and sister-in-law that it would be beneficial… we opted to attend…

We were greeted by five members of the Team…

A Psychologist… a Social Worker… Lead Doctor… Doctor Assistant… and Chaplin…

We were asked about our concerns…

and his well-being…

Thoughts we had… and worries that might be bothering us…

What a question??? YES!… we are all of these things… but, their mannerisms were caring… and they took notes as we talked…

I imagine every time we have to face this issue… it will give us a better understanding…  for better words…

They commented on our “togetherness” in this happening in our lives…

and seemed to be in awe of our openness… with each other…

After 47 years of marriage… and the obstacles… happiness… and love we have shared… It is another hurdle we have to meet head on and get through…

The hardest so far!…

They are available at any time… even without an appointment…

if we have concerns… come to them…

It is always good to have support with close friends/family… but, professionally too!…

We left after Prayer with the Chaplin who I had met a year ago when Bobby’s first cancer arose…

It has rained so much here in Louisville…

and it sure can keep your attitude… a little down…

but, today is sunshine… warm… and will last a couple of days…

We are so glad!…

My two sons… Grandson and Bobby painted woodwork in kitchen/living room yesterday…

Oh… what a difference it made…

The rest looks fine… and with a new kitchen floor… we will feel so much better…

A few more things we want to accomplish… while Bobby has energies…

and with the willing help of my other guys… we will have the house in order…

My sister has been one of my blessings…

She calls… visits… and lifts us up in prayer…

We have always been close… and her and Bobby are like brother/sister…

She brought him a Prayer BlanketOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It was blessed by the priest… and has a rosary attached made by a Downs Syndrome girl for her contribution to others…

We are not Catholic… but… God is Savior for all people…

We just live by where God found us…

and titles mean little in HIS eyes…

Bobby was so pleased and it will always be special during these times and later…

He immediately put it across his shoulders as we sat outside…

Thanks Sis!…

  1. I am really glad that you have such a supportive team around you, not only the professionals but also your wonderful family. You and Bobby are an example to us all. I send you love and hugs across the ocean and think of you both often. xx
