Impassioned ~ Day 130

A few weeks ago I wrote about my dear neighbor. She has terminal cancer and was sent home on Hospice. This mean there is nothing else the doctors can do except keep her comfortable. She was given two weeks. Yesterday was four weeks and she is still very alert. A lot of pain but she carries on conversations and knows everybody, this is such a miracle. I have stayed away and let her family have their time with her. I have talked to her on the phone. When I visited I took another photo of the flowers I took to her. The pink butterfly was her favorite part of the arrangement. It is very beautiful. I am so glad I could give her a few moments of peace and we shared a few smiles. Keeping her in my thoughts, hoping she can be comfortable. She said she is not ready to go yet. I told her I was glad to hear that.

  1. And I do not have a good opinion about the hospices. I hope the hope is with her and help her survive the difficult days. The flowers are wonderful, and the butterfly is magnificent.

  2. That is good news! I hope by going past the date given by the doctor give her and everyone a huge “boost” to their hope and determination. Not to mention such beautiful flowers to lighten things up 🙂

    Ps: I hope I learn to not take things for granted too 🙂

    • Well it is still a day at a time. Yes is is good but I have to remember she is on hospice, getting no care. I saw it happen with my Dad, then he was gone. She did enjoy her flowers. I will treasure that moment for sure.
      You will learn. 🙂

    • I have found bible verses and quotes, and a few songs that says that in so many words.

      Life’s not promised to anyone
      Live today and love someone
      Don’t live life so critical
      Make up for your miracle
