Caring for someone who you love while they are dying

Caring for Ron as he is in the last journey of his life is one of the most difficult things I have ever done. Yet there are so many blessings along they way. It amazes me how many people go out of their way to help us as we travel on this journey.
Hospice of Lubbock has been so kind and loving to us. Teaching us how to live every moment to the fullest while he preparing to leave this world. Living is the key. Living each moment as if it was our last because it just might be.
There are so many things I have learned that no one told me and I so wish I could share them with someone who is on the same journey as I am or will be one day. I am not a writter so no book will ever come out with my name on it. I really don't blog so I thought I would post a note.
Disposible products make your life much eaiser. You may have to think outside of the box and use items that were made for another reason to make your life easier.
Potty Chair Trick - A small trash can liner (Sented helps) will fit the potty bowl and makes clean up MUCH easier and quicker.
Walker on Wheels - The walkers with wheels and seats are great for a wheel chair in a pinch.
Plastic Trays from a Restaurant Supply make a perfect size try for taking meals to the room. Easy to clean, they don't break.
Tervis Plastic Glasses with Lids are perfect for keeping fluids by the bedside because it keeps the drink cold or hot for a long time, and makes using a straw easy. (I got mine at Bed Bath & Beyond)
If you every have a chance to go to a event to raise money for Hospice take the time to go. It is life changing for those of us who have the need to have them in our lives. It is not a free service and takes lots of money for them to do what they do but if you ever have to use them you too will understand why its important they are here to serve us when we need them most.
If you have taken time to read this I hope it will help you if not now but one day down the road in your journey.
