"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
- Dr. Elisabeth Kubler Ross
Imminent is a definite, forceful word. My grandmother's Hospice nurse used it today....her death is imminent.
Ommie is hallucinating. She does not recognize family members. She is restless....pulling at the bed covers. Her medicine was switched again today. Trying to find the right combination to keep her comfortable. We don't want her to be in any pain.
I sit, 5 hours away in winter weather, and wait.
