My wife passed away this morning at about 12:45 am. My father was sitting with her at the time. Just prior to me coming up to her bedroom to give her next round of oral morphine and Lorazepam to keep her comfortable as she lay wasting away. She left before the rain came in. I sat with her for a while with one of our dogs afterwards, while awaiting the Hospice nurse to come to my home and make the official record of her death. I just finished a beer and am for some reason strangely calm. Her sister was to visit her today, so I have put off calling the undertaker until her sister has had a chance to say good bye.
She deteriorated rather quickly since coming home from the hospital Friday before last, She and I were at that time under the impression, that despite the colostomy, and stomach tube she would have plenty of time and she would be able to still be active and work her dogs. No such thing as it was wishful thinking at best. I am really very tired now. I'll post more later.
