The sun is up

I'm glad the sun is shining. The night is so lonely. There is no escape.

Scott has progressively gotten worse. His breathing is slow, labored and erratic. He's been dreaming a lot. Last night he was talking about Kate getting a new bike. Then he was "eating" corn on the cob in his sleep and trying to text Bonnie to see if she wanted to go to Joe's Crab Shack for a crab leg dinner. Fortunately for everyone, I took away his phone. I don't think he could have actually gotten a call made or a text done but it would have been funny if he did.
His speech is unintelligible and mostly, from what bits and pieces I can put together, he talks nonsense. A short time ago he wanted to turn on the TV so I've turned on some fishing show so he can listen to it in his moments of alertness, however brief they may be.
Kate's waking now. I'm a little nervous about that. It's nice to know that if I feel like being here isn't the best place for her I have so many wonderful people surrounding us that will come and get her.
Now if only Starbucks delivered... or maybe hospice has an IV for that (for me of course).
I hoping for a few more wonderful moments as a family today. Go out and make your wonderful moments today too.

It sounds so very hard. You are so lucky to have so many supportive people around you.

And if I were closer you would so have that Starbucks!!!

I am praying for peace throughout your home, for an absence of anxiety, for a few smiles and laughs in the midst of this storm. I love you all and am with you in thoughts all day.
