This morning Dennis starting having problems with secretions impacting his breathing. He is still very aware and able to understand and make his wishes known. We have upped his Morphine dose, given a med for secretions, having him sitting upright and are waiting on an anti-anxiety med. (We are in the midst of a big snow storm so pharmacy deliveries to the hospice are slow.)
These verses sum up Dennis so well.
2 Timothy 4:6-8. For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
Pray for comfort and peace as we walk through these final hours together.
