Where are we today?
Today was not a good day for George. Over the past week he has been in pain on and off. I think the pain has tired him out. He has been resting most the of day.
The doctor was in and his pain medication has been increased slightly.
I am staying tonight because earlier today, the Weather Network showed freezing rain overnight tonight and I wanted to make sure I would be able to get here to the hospice in the morning. The weather people are guessing. Now it looks like freezing rain tomorrow afternoon or evening.
George is at the Stratford Perth Rotary Hospice. https://www.rotaryhospice.ca/. Click on the link and if I did it correctly, it will take to the hospice website. You can check it out if you want. It really is the best source of information about this facility.
This is an awesome facility. Everyone here is caring and not just to the people in residence but to the family members as well. A day doesn't go by that someone asks if they can get you something. This is really a home away from home. The little things matter, like daily fresh baked treats and home made soup at no cost the anyone who wants something. The baked treats are often times hard to turn down.
There is a posted area that shows the contributors to get this hospice up and running.
There are 4 Visionary's, 14 Benefactor's, 20 Patron's, 26 Partner's, 34 Supporter's and 70 Companion's. The hospice was responsible for the bulk of the construction costs as well as raising an additional $800,000 annually to keep the hospice running. There are 10 rooms here but only sufficient funding to support 8.
Today was a tough day not just on George and myself but also on the staff. They are so use to seeing him up and about, giving them a hard time (in fun of course) and that fabulous smile.
Thanks for your prayers and best wishes.
