Thank You!

  1. To all of you Hospice nurses out there. I want to say a heart felt thank you! I just recently lost my father and then within three weeks of my father's death my sister passed away. Whew. It's been a tough month. My father had been under Hospice care for sometime. However, my sister was diagnosed with cancer (colon and pancreatic) the week I burried my father. We had no idea she was that sick. So, we only had help from Hospice for a week before she died. But what relief it was to have them there to help. Each of the nurses that came out to help were professional, friendly and supportive.

    Oh yes, and thank you CNA's for coming out to bath my dad and my sister and for cleaning up after them.

    You folks truly give families like mine the strength we need to get through situations like this.

    Thank you!

    i can't even begin to imagine your grief, and please accept my heartfelt sympathies. please, feel free to pm me anytime at all should you feel the need to talk. i've been a hospice nurse for almost 9 yrs now and losing 2 family members so closely together is beyond comprehension.

    my prayers go out to you and your family. God Bless you and yours. :icon_hug:

    I'm sorry. ((((hugs)))) How difficult it must be to face another loss when you are already grieving. I'm glad that you had help from Hospice and I hope you continue to get help from the bereavement staff as your hearts mend.
