Re: Beginning the end of my journey

Cristald you are in my thoughts constantly since I read your post. I haven't had the chance to write but you are right there is not much sharing on hospice here. We have been in hospice with my mom for over a month now and they have been good at making my mom comfortable. Sadly my mom's cancer has s...
