Monday’s post was titled ‘Hospice & Home‘, and today’s post I could easily name Hospice House. I do not need to be confused any more than I already am.
Because hospice focus is quality of life while I am still here and since Monday my body took a different direction than expected, I am in the hospital – a hospice hospital – or in my case, a Hospice House.
I started having issues breathing due to fluid on my lungs and my pain had increased as well. Recent pain medication had changed and an increased in level took place. It is believed my body is not eliminating fluids qs quickly and this fluid is building in my lungs as well as other places. I currently am off my nutritional fluid IV while this fluid reduces in my lungs and my breathing become easier again. I entered Hospice House on Tuesday and unsure how long I will be here. This place does not seem like a hospital, but instead a quiet place to receive peace and treatment.
I stole these words from a text Gary sent a couple of days ago – (with some editing)
We thought it best for him to receive some medical care for the recent build up of fluids in his lungs causing him breathing issues and to try to figure out how best to get some nutrients into him that won’t cause so much issues with the fluid buildup. The place is very pleasant and cheery and the staff are very attentive and compassionate.
