Scare

Had a scare today.  While I was at work when I got a call that our loved one’s (C’s) status had changed. She is in hospice care at home.

When I got there, C’s breathing was very shallow. She wasn’t moving and did not respond beyond some slurred words, when questioned.

Just yesterday was having a wonderful time laughing and joking with family who came to visit. She was up for hours.

We gradually came to the conclusion that she was just exhausted from the yesterday’s visit. The hospice nurse, whom we called, confirmed that conclusion. I was surprised that a few hours of normal, cheerful activity could take such a toll.

Life will be a rollercoaster from now on, I fear.
