Default Henrys coming home !

Hi all,

my Heart just sings wHen i go look at tHe forum and i see all of your wonderful posts and good wisHes and tHougHts and prayers. my wisH always, was for tHis forum to be a place of comfort, solitude and friendsHip. i tHink tHat it was accomplisHed ! well, we are bringing Henry Home tommorrow. He will still be under palliative care, but at Home. He is very weak now, but still in good spirits. He is incredible. we Had a Hospital bed delivered today and set up. He will sleep mucH better in tHat bed tHan in witH me. nietHer of us sleep wHen He is in bed witH me. He is pain free, due to tHe wonderful drugs tHat He is on. He fougHt meds for so long, but He now sees tHe advantages of being on tHem. our goal is to keep Him comfortable, content, and as Happy as possible. it Has been a long 2 week ordeal, we almost lost Him, but He Has a strong will and sucH a powerful faitH. tHe nurses all love Him up tHere, and tHey tHink He is a saint ! (little do tHey know) Ha.. actually tHrougH tHe face of tHis adversity, He Has maintained His dignity, courage, and His Humour. sometimes it was really rougH, like tHis past two weeks, but, we still found time to laugH and spend an incredible amount of time togetHer i wwent back to work today, ugH.... i could get used to not working you know! i Have an incredible staff and support team at work, and tHey are always wanting to do sometHing for me. its weird, because i am tHe giver, and tHe one everyone runs to wHen tHey are distressed. i am not used to being tHe one being taken care of ! i guess i sHould just enjoy it and let tHem feel tHat tHey are Helping me, wHicH tHey are, but i would never let tHem know just How mucH, or tHey would smotHer me! kim, tim needs a spanking ! Ha just kidding. He sounds a lot like Henry. are you sure He is not dutcH? stubborn and independent. good for some tHings i guess. He will know and so will you, wHen you need to be witH Him 24/7. glad you called tHe otHer day. i loved Hearing your voice. so comforting and caring. melissa, i ate all of your goodies ! mmmmmmmmm...now i Have 5 extra pounds to run off ! again, tHat was so nice of you to come Here, but i am so sorry i missed you. we will Have to Have a great big ole reunion one day. wouldn't tHat be grand. elaine, tHereasa, Holly, less, karen, ted, al, lee, jane, mike, karen, ricHard, and to anyone tHat i may Have missed, tHank you, your prayers and good wisHes were felt Here, and were so Heartfelt. you are a trememdous buncH of people and i am so lucky to Have you all in our lives. deb, How is your study going? i Have not Heard anytHing about it from you. i Hope tHat if you Have started it tHat you are doing okay. take good care of yourself. anyway, tHe big day is tommorrw, so i sHould go get some sleep, (if i can) and be rested for Henry. i Hope you are all well, and keeping busy witH tHis cold crappy weatHer. i will let you all know How we make out and will keep you all informed.

good nigHt my dear friends, you are truly tHe best !

stay strong,

love, carol xo
