Headed Home?

I talked to Mom tonight. She said Dad was sleeping most of the time, which is good I guess. The combination of adjusting his diuretics and catheterization has helped reduce the fluid retention. The Doc will be in to see him and they'll decide then when he goes home. Mom said that Hospice will be there to help. They're getting a bed to put in the living room, much better for Dad's comfort. I agree with Kathy that it'll be good to have someone else there that's not as emotionally attached to help care for him, it seems that we're having one crisis after another. I just know that I'm scared. I don't want him to suffer, but I can't even think about losing him. I've got to go before I start balling again, LOVE TO ALL! Eileen
