Meeting

We are having a big meeting with the Hospice folks tomorrow. I think they are just wanting to make sure that we know the options available to Glenn. I think it is difficult for them to understand him wanting to "give up" as they say- the thing they do not see is that we do not look at death as an end, but as a progression. Deanne told me once that death is a process much like birth, not so much an event but a journey. A journey we all will make and also endure while others move on in their journey. Lots of praying and fasting going on at our place right now- there is no "right" choice, I think that is the hardest part of all of this. Who knows what the decisions we make for Glenns care could bring- nobody knows because it is not our plan- its Gods plan and we just need to get through these trials with as much dignity and respect for all involved as possible- try to do what is best at the time considering all involved. Glenn wants me to tell him what he should do and I just cannot do that- I told him I will support him in any decisions he does make-I will be his advocate 110%-
