Yes , today is Oct 11th, 2012,, (10.11.12) , Today is a one day closer, and approaching the day I can never forget, I was a couple day after Halloween,, The weather is just is as it was that fateful year, Cool morning with warm sunshine coming down to warm the day..! When Bob had to go to the hospital for the last time.. Will never forget those words he spoke.. after much pleading for me to let me take him,, He would usually refuse to go on his own.. would wait till it was so bad till I would have to call rescue. But this time , HE said "OK LETS GO." I was so pleased I didn't have to call rescue this time.. Of course I thought it would be just another visit as before.. They would get him all fixed up and come home again...But this time was very different,, after a couple of days there, the doctors delivered that ultimate message,, that they had done just about all they could do.. Of course I could not comprehend all this...But I think Bob had already decided enough was enough.. That is why he gave in so easy to go, this time. I really think he knew.. But of course I wasn't ready. His doctor admitted him to Hospice on Nov, 9th. Needless to say this was a difficult month for me. I was there every day. as much as work would allow...
Thanksgiving being one of his fovorite holidays to cook,, it wa going to be difficult,,, I was able to go to a restarant and get his favorite Turkey dinner on that day, We had out Last Thanksgiving dinner together...!!
