October 31 Update

Brandon is settling in with hospice. The nurse comes daily at this point, and she is fantastic. She’s a compassionate, friendly, genuine person, and he really likes her. That’s such a blessing for all of us. Brandon’s pain level seems better at times, but they would like to see it diminished further. He’s very tired, and the number of medications he’s taking adds to that. The nausea is still an issue, and the nurse is trying everything to get that under control.

Kristen began her leave from work to be home with him this week. His hospice nurse was very worried about him being home alone, and we had been trying to juggle our schedules to have one of us there as much of the time as possible. The meal train also started this week, and that’s been a huge help for our family! Sometimes you don’t realize how taking just one thing off your “to do” list helps, but not having to think about what to put on the table for dinner is much appreciated.
