    My Love, my life is now gone.

    My PALS, Dean, passed this morning quietly in his sleep. He told me yesterday that he was ready to go, I told him I wasn't ready for him to go - he won. Love you always and forever Dean.

    Breathing Issues

    Wondering if anyone else has encounter this situation. Over the past month Dean gets very short of breath after walking to the bathroom etc. He is using a walker. I've taken him to the ER twice because it's lasted longer than 15 - 20 min. both times. The last trip to the ER he was on oxygen...

    Formula

    Question for you all that are tube feeding. Dean has been on Isosource since he had his peg done in April. He's had no problems except for some constipation at the beginning. The neutritionist at the VA suggested switching him to Suplena because he also has kidney failure and it has less...

    Problem with new packaging of Isosource

    I'm sure this will probably go to moderation because of mentioning a brand name. We had been receiving this product in a can for my hubby for tube feeding. They have changed their packaging and it's now in a "Tetra Pak" which resembles a kids juice package. The problem with this new design is...

    Friday the 13th Thank God It's Over

    Rant: I don't like Friday's when it's the 13th. I usually don't do much on those days. I'm not really superstitious as my son was born on a Friday the 13th but he weighed in at 7lb, 11oz which I figured evened it out. Yesterday I got a call that my daughter that lives 180 miles away was in a...

    It Just Doesn't Get Better, Does It!

    We have the nebulizer, suction machine and cough assist for Dean and he just doesn't seem to be getting any better. I'm so torn on what to do. I called the pulmonologist for a appointment, waiting to hear back. I'm probably over reacting but he's coughing all night and all day. A good friend...
