I'm not a hospine nurse, actually a school nurse, however my father was terminally ill last year and one year ago today we engaged hospice. He only lived a week. 20 years with hep. c , 1 liver transplant, and finally hepatic/renal failure and he had a bleed. We spent one week at home with my father, which was his dying wish, to be at home with his family. Our hospice nurse was Amber, and she was a miracle to us. We could not have done it without her and the nurses that called too.
I just wanted to tell you all that what you do is amazing :heartbeat You are all angels who help not only the patient, but the family as well. I can't imagine what the process would have been like without nurses like you. So. THANK YOU, for being the angels you are.
