Re: End Stage Liver Disease Hospice What to Expect

Warren, thank you for your reply.

Your above statement pin points exactly what I have identified for myself as being the hardest part when running through the eventual outcome in my mind.

I have pretty much prepared myself and have solidified for myself what my "job" is; you have summed it up quite nicely.

The other practical matters concerning how to handle what may occur I will address with the hospice staff. As long as I feel prepared in those respects than I feel I will be able to be more present when the time comes.

John has actually taken a big turn for the worse over the last several days, so it looks like he might not make it to me. However, that could change again. The next few days will be telling.
