Discouraged

Well it seems that Glenn's "flare ups" are so close together right now, they just do not stop. The pain is horrible and he is barely able to walk. Even the Hospice folks are baffled. They will be over tonight so we will see what they say. His Doc was going to try to formulate a new plan to manage the pain- it would be great to get him some relief.
It is so hard to leave for work each morning, he doesn't even look like himself some days. I feel guilty the whole time I am there but I know this is how it has to be. My boss, my peers and my team and have been so great to me through all of this and I do not want to ever let them down, plus even though it is hard I know I need the break some days. It is nice to be able focus on something else for 8 hours a day, I wish I could say it isn't on my mind all of the time, but work helps. Keep Glenn in your prayers, he could really use them right now..

  1. Chris, I'm sorry things are progressing so quickly right now. I pray that the hospice team can find a better way to manage Glenn's pain so he can have some good days again. Try not to feel guilty about going to work. I'm sure it's hard, but it is a diversion of sorts. We'll keep Glenn in our prayers for sure, and the rest of you as well. I'll see you tomorrow night when I bring dinner over. Love you!
