    Hospice does great work. Unfortunately, I've had 3 experiences.

      Sorry to hear.

      My FIL was ready to go. He was only there about 2 hours. I had to let nurses know he passed.

        I've spent a week there. One of the cool things IMO is that the nurses don't hover. We all know why folks go there, and there's never any reason to rush the end.

            I have to admit I expected a much different outcome. I'm glad it was non-eventful. For my MIL, wife and her sister. The man was SO full of life so hard to see him that way. They had him heavily medicated. Removed the vent, and he just passed after a couple hours. He was surrounded by his family. No doctors. No devices.

            Dying is a part of living son. I recon so...

            Godspeed JJ. Love you.

              I thought it was, "Dyin ain't much of a livin". From Josey Wales, but I get the sentiment. Nobody's made it out alive yet.

              That's the beauty of Hospice. The don't inject themselves to make the experience more dramatic. Death is the expected outcome for the guest, and everyone else for that matter. They will be as attentive, or as invisible as the family wants. Personally, I truly appreciate what they do.

                    Condolences C. Tough time for the family for sure but sounds like you're holding everyone together. Allow yourself time to grieve as well.

                          Sorry to hear C.

                          Life is a b!tch sometimes but it seems he departed peacefully and surrounded by loved ones.
                          There is no guarantee of anything. Today we are here, tomorrow who knows.

                          God bless brother.

                              Wake went well tonight. Nice service by Hudson Valley 1013, Knights of Columbus and NYPD bag pipes. Much appreciated.

                              Also appreciate visit by some AA members. You guys are the best! Me and the Mrs appreciate it very much! Thank you.

                              Funeral tomorrow. Should be a nice send off to an awesome man. They broke the mold with him, LOL...
