Last night was rough for Al and for me. Hospice came and with a Tylenol suppository the fever was brought down. After getting Al as comfortable as possible she took me in the living room so we could talk.
The gist of the conversation was his heart is shutting down. There is nothing that can be done anymore. For the most part my hope is now gone. I pray for a quiet and peaceful release.
This morning Al has a fever again. The reason for the constant fevers is his body is shutting down. There is nothing that can be done for the swelling. He is complaining of not being able to breathe, so I am getting off of here.
I had many nightmares of death during the night. I had real tears. I am so tired but I must go on for Al. The caregiver just arrived. I will talk to you all soon. Please pray for a quiet release. Al has been a fighter all along but now he just needs to relax and go home.
