    I am not a hospice nurse, but have been feeling quite drawn to it for a few years and actually have an interview with an agency next week! But I digress.....

    Just read a really insightful book called "Dying Well: Peace and Possibilities at the End of life" by Ira Byock, MD. He was former president of American Academy of Hospice and Palliative care. Formerly an ER / Primary care doc, he eventually made hospice his work.

    This book is heartfelt, practical, easy to read and gives great insight into different families and how they processed the dying process together

    You can also find a great interview with him on a podcast called "On Being" with Krista Tippett. Google it.
    Hope this helps... Peace and all good things!!! And keep us posted.
