    He is flying free!

    My darling husband, Steve, peacefully passed away on August 26th. He was surrounded by our seven grandchildren, our son and his wife, and myself. It was such a peaceful passing! I cried my eyes out no only because he was gone, but also because he was flying free - no more pain, or air hunger...

    Adjustable Bed Advice?

    My husband sleeps on a hospital bed we received from the ALSA loan pool here in Minnesota. It has an air pump for alternating pressure. For his comfort, I purchased a very good 3" Serta mattress topper, which I got on sale for 1/2 price plus 30% coupon:). My PALS loves the topper & is very...

    Spasticity in leg

    My PALS also has problems with cramping and fasciculations. I have several of those packs that contains seeds or something, that you can put in the microwave. I put them on his legs, or wherever he is having problems. The warmth definitely helps calm things down so he can get some sleep. I...

    Thank you for all the good, heartfelt advice. His hospital bed is in our room, and that is where he will pass, surrounded by love. A couple of our friends can't understand why I am "letting him" stay home & eventually pass here. Won't it bother me to be in the same room after he is gone?? I...

    My PALS finally received his PWC a couple weeks ago. He should have received it almost a year ago, but miscommunications & ball dropping happened. It is set up with a head array so he can drive it, and a joystick in the back so I can drive it. Unfortunately, his neck has gotten so weak, he is...

    Exhausted & Feeling Guilty

    I would love if his aid would give him a shower, but, Steve does not want that - modesty?? And, he will only poop if I am there to clean him up. Yay. It's enough for him that they help him pee. But I get it, I would probably be reluctant to have an aid get that personal. He has an aid with him...
