Tomorrow is THE big day. My brother returns to MDAnderson. He seems a little more tired and he told me he is so restless and cannot sleep. I just couldn't ask if he had taken his sleeping pills.

I was very close to 2 patients who did not make it with cancer and they were so restless at the end. I pray we are not there. For all of you that do not know anything about Hospice, they have some of their own ways to calm these people down and it is a true blessing. Many people are afraid of Hospice but in the 2 cases I knew they were truly angels of mercy. Hopefully, you will not need them.

Thanks for always being there when needed................dede
