The reason the Left is pushing this 'White Supremacist'
mantra is against the Right is because they are sooo
damned afraid of losing the Black Vote, that they have to Lie..

My wife is in the hospital on a Bipap (not bpap) ventilator. She has severe COPD, a massive infection, MRSA, and a failing heart. She and I started going steady when she was 13, just a month or two from 14. That was 54 years ago. We've been married 48 of that. The doctors told me today she has just a few months to live and will put her on hospice in the hospital.  I didn't take it very well even though deep inside I already knew.  There's just something about being told that stabs you.

This photo is from when I was in Vietnam. That would have made her 18 at the time.  A year later we married. I have no idea how I managed to be the lucky one.

Jim, your dedication to your lovely wife is incomparable.

We keep you both in our prayers daily and sincerely hope that you are able to keep your strength of resolve up, through this difficult time.
Having just gone through this with my husband's mother last year, preparation kept her going.  She had a plan and wanted to ensure it was in place before she left. 

Just being by your wife's side means the world to her.  Let all else be damned, take this time to be with her and know that every day after she will always be with you.

Take care of yourself, please.  We're all thinking about you.

Last minute reprieve.

I talked to my wifes doctor that she's been with for 12 years, he's the one who first wanted to put her into Hospice. The reason is because when I first took her to the hospital, she was was in horrible shape. Once she got to a room she curled up in bed like a little old lady, with the forced air mask, not eating, and sleeping all the time. And with everything that was wrong with her gave all indications she was ready to leave. But over the last week she had been sitting up as much as her breathing would allow her, she's been eating, not much, but enough to get the attention of the doctors, and she was removing the air mask for short periods showing she's trying to get off it.
 
So, the good news is that the Doctor now wants to momentarily cancel the Hospice and send her to a nearby LTAC (Long Term Acute Care) facility (that specializes in hard cases), for about two weeks to see if they can help her.  He asked me if that was OK, (WELL DUH!  Yes!)   Maybe they can help her come home under just regular nursing care. If not, then they will again recommend Hospice care.  She still has a LOT wrong with her.
 
But, she has at least has a chance to fight and be with us a bit longer.
