Good morning! We had a long meeting with palliative care yesterday, while dh was getting some iv fluids. The doctor said, "Well, you guys already know what I usually have to teach people: How to meditate or pray, how to ask for help when you need it, how to plan realistically for your situation, how to recognize that death is not the end of the world, and how to take care of yourselves." We also had a long discussion about pain management. Dh would like to avoid opioids, and the doctor agrees. We will be looking into cannabinoids (yep, medical marijuana). Dh has one of the eligible conditions. It takes a month to get certified, so we will start that process this week.

We are now going to have the visiting nurse three times a week to give dh iv fluids, because he can't consume more than about 8 ounces a day. That is great...I can continue my normal routine and know that someone will check on dh. I need to work a couple days a week to make up for his missed income, so I have to leave him alone. He's fine, but I do worry. This nurse will also eventually become our hospice nurse. I know her from Girl Scouts 15 or 20 years ago! Her substitute is a long time friend of mine as well.

Our family doctor (and next door neighbor) called last night and said he would always be available if dh needed something. He said he could stop by within the hour even if he was in his office when we called, and will check in with dh at lunchtime if he notices that my car is not in the drive.

We are so fortunate to have such caring people helping us! I could not be more grateful.

I am up early to put the bread in the oven. I started making it yesterday morning...had to put the dough in the fridge when we got a call from the hospital telling us to come in early...pulled it out to rise, and then forgot to bake it...put it back in the fridge for the night...Hope it works this morning! I am learning to be flexible.

I am at the museum today from 9:30 till 4. Home to check on dh and get some dinner...then (if all is well) off to Fiber Fun to knit (and maybe have a glass of wine) with friends for an hour or two.

What is your day looking like? Have a great one! SOAP for all of you.

I see some hopeful things happening, so maybe we can pray and not faint.

Trump is someone who did not *need* to be President. He had a very good life in New York and coming to Washington was really kind of a step down for him. It uprooted his wife, who has business interests, and their son, who was in school there.

I get a sense that the Trumps have had their eyes opened during the campaign and since the election. They seem to have fallen in love with the American people and I think they kind of respect us. It's a different vibe. I know Trump has surrounded himself with very solid Christians and I can't help but think he is listening to them.

My brother in law just called to talk to dh...and apparently a cousin has spoken to my father in law. How many weeks since Maria?

His house is undamaged, but he has no cell, water, or electricity. Very little food in the stores--he has money, but nothing to buy.

So relieved to hear he is OK. Very Happy

Now we have to try to get him the word that dh is so ill.... Sad

That is great news. I'm sure that is helpful for your dh to know his father is okay.


In Him--Tracy
