Truth or Dare #2


On your second day in the Hospice Unit for uncontrollable pain,

I asked if you wanted to stay or come home;

that you were still in control.

Through clenched teeth

you almost yelled at me,

" I’m DONE".



I called our daughter on the phone,

inconsolably sobbing,

"Daddy just broke up with me".

we are sitting with 'grandpa' this week, he left CICU to go home. He wasn't wishing to stay there, he wanted his own chair.
They have voice till they don't.
take care of yourself and remember he loved you, the medication and the whole process changes them.

We wished for them to stay and they wished for an end to the pain.
