Marking Time

Postby Catherine Poole » Mon May 21, 2018 6:34 am

When you lose someone after a long disease process time is perceived so differently. Today marks six months since I lost my love. When I look back, it is foggy. I had a lovely reunion with my team, the hospice team I worked with for the duration. It was like seeing family that I truly missed in my life. I told them I couldn't have made it through without them. The many battles I fought for good care will stick with me. It is a frustrating job to be a caregiver, to know what's best for your loved one and then fight for it. It seems like a distant time, yet so fresh. The tears and sensitivity to remembering him have eased. Now to figure out what's next.
