He smiled!

Sunday, May 22, 2011

For those not in the know - and I am discovering so many spark friends are in the know - doing Hospice is a blessing in disguise.

Yes, there is going to be some hardship in the coming weeks - but he was in pain and I gave him relief immediately, and he smiled! He smiled because I made the pain go away. I had to give him 2 of the intermediate pills but the pain went away.

I have never had children but I would compare my Dad's smile to that of your newborn baby when he or she smiles at you for the first time.

P.S. No, it wasn't gas! emoticon emoticon

**edit: 5/24
No earthly idea of calories today - but at least I am posted some of it.

Not really hungry today and the cheesecake was handy and easy to eat/digest. Rough day with Pop - we had to transfer him to a hospital bed. He wanted to know why and we said it would be more comfortable - he said okay.

He talked to us quite a bit - that was wonderful! You could always tell when he saw Mama.

He's worth a few extra calories to keep me going. I have the rest of my life to get back on track - and I will!

He's running fever and that is one of the symptoms - we were told he is advancing quite rapidly. Probably be with Mama before the week is out. Amazing he still has lucid moments. We are cherishing them.
