After 7 and a bit years, my darling wife Margaret is almost at the end of her race. She went into hospital a week ago after a series of falls. Saturday AM she started to rapidly decline after a mild heart attack and Monday AM she was placed under the care of the Palliative team.
She is now pain free and in a lovely drug induced fog.
We cannot speak highly enough of her Palliative team, particularly the amazing Dr. Sally Greenaway. The care and compassion they have given to Marg and all our family is a blessing beyond measure.
Thinking of you all lots of hugs xx
You both are in my thoughts xx
I dance like no ones watching, yep I'm the crazy lady in the middle of the dancefloor!
You soubdcsupported by the team around you. I wish you peace and closeness with each other.
Margaret has been transferred to the Palliative unit at Mount Druitt hospital, the most compassionate and caring place we both could be in.
When I arrived, I watched an old guy bring his even older Aussie Cattle Dog into the hospital, right through the lobby and up the main hallway of the ward. I asked a nurse if that was allowed, and she just smiled and said "It's expected". His dog had been fretting and he bought him in to say goodbye to his wife.
Margaret and I have had the most beautiful night together, just her and I. I've told her how much I love her and she's held my hand while I kissed her face.
Seeing her so peaceful has given me the strength and serenity that I need.
Even now, she knows me better than I know myself.
bless you both xx
I only know you through your generous post to me a few days ago but you are both in my thoughts - reading this post also gives me strength for which I thank you both.
Dear Panic, I second what mandajayne put - bless you both x
