    Dear Spruce, I believe you and your brother, as your mom’s caregivers, have made the best possible decision for her. Considering her health and the advice you received from the surgeon, you have probably added quaility time for her here on Earth. If she continues to be depressed, please consider asking the doctor about adding an antidepressant to the medication she takes. Enjoy many more card games together and come back to this site as often as you need to. Pam

    Dear Spruce, I am sorry to hear of your Mom’s health. Does she take an antidepressant? It would probably help. I’d ask her doctor to prescribe one. I’m sure at age 80 she would need a cardiac clearance for surgery. Has she had one? How long ago was surgery suggested? She is very lucky to have such a caring son. Glad you joined this board. It is a great support so come back often.

    Margaret, you have done an amazing job to honor Tom and his life. I loved that you had a nice dinner and were treated to old stories. My dad was also buried with full military honors. From what I learned, it isn’t a 21 gun salute at all. That’s what I had thought, too. My husband is in the Air Force and once served in the honor guard himself. There can be any number of service members firing rifles. They are called volleys and each one always fires three volleys. It signifies the battle field is cleared of wounded and war can begin again. It is a beautiful ceremony with Taps and the folding of the United States flag. Both my husband and brother in law wore their uniforms as my dad was buried at the VA cemetery. I hope you get some rest soon.

    Maragret and Tom, I, too, have followed your posts and courageous battle with cc. Tom is an amazing man and will always be with you! I pray for peace now and many memory making days for the both of you to cherise. You are both loved by so many family and friends. Pam

    jG, my dad was 75 and living alone when diagnosised with cc. He was able to live in his house with my sister and I staying with him until he went to sleep in the evenings. The last 3 months he stayed at my sister’s house. I was his caregiver during the day. It is extremely difficult for patient and caregiver. We wanted things to seem as normal as possible. He battled infections and bile duct blockages. Like others have posted, make sure you speak to Hospice and let them know her discomfort. I know you are strectched thin! You can do it! Come back when needed for support. This site was a lifeline for me. Take care.
