Life happens

When I wrote my previous blog post, I was so happy.  My husband was going to be discharged from the hospital later that day.  We had a diagnosis to explain why he had been feeling bad lately, and a treatment plan.  He was going to get better and I was going to get to go to Palmetto.

Well, after that, he was quickly back in the hospital, and he got better again, and then he rapidly got much worse.  He passed away on September 5.  There were some very bad days, but the last ones were peaceful with no more suffering.

There has been such an outpouring of sympathy and love from those who knew.  That has helped me keep going in these difficult days.  I am reading my emails, but forgive me if I don't get to replying to them all.  Bless you all.
