Still about the Same — 6 Comments

  1. I can feel your acceptance and peace, even with the painful arm.

    I appreciate how difficult it is to write about your Daddy…and I want to thank you, again! for sharing your thoughts. It has helped me enormously with a similar situation with my Mom, has helped me find acceptance, too.

  2. I just put another pain suppository in, and his bottom is no worse, at least. He’s so peaceful as long as we leave him alone, and keep the morphine going, that I just don’t have the heart to keep turning him. That’s a mistake we made with Pop and Mama that I’ve learned from.

  3. I would like to think that this journal would be helpful to you, Marion, and to others in similar situations. I know it helps me to put my thoughts down. I’m a very private person, and don’t talk much about my faith to people face to face. It’s easy for me to say how I feel here, though.

    You, Ruth, and I are at different places on the same path. I’m glad we found each other.

  4. I hope you can get some rest but don’t imagine it can be a lot right now. It’s good that you can write about what’s happening even if it is painful.


  5. I’ve gotten quite a bit of sleep today, Sheila. Frances is in the room with him, and I’m just down the hall, so I’m able to let go and really go to sleep. It still is in spurts, what with phone calls, and my own medicines I have to take. I just woke up to the afternoon meds alarm, but I’ll drift back off to sleep again in just a bit.

  6. I hope you have managed to rest and am pleased that you are having some help. I know how difficult it must be for you and agree that it is far kinder to leave your Father in peace that continually turning him. Thinking of you constantly
