Papaw took another turn, and isn't responive now.  I just got home, my grandmother, and aunt and going to be sleeping there at the hospice house until he goes home with Jesus.  I caught myself just watching his stomach, driving my self nuts making sure the next breath would come.  Sometimes his breathing would change, and I would jump.  The only discomfort he is having are these recurrent hiccups, lasting all day.  They are hard.  So sad.

Jun. 2, 2008 at 10:36 PM I'm sorry you are going through this. I was there when my grandmother was on her last days right before my daughter was born and remember doing the same thing! I'd watch her breath and it was nerve racking. Hang in there, I'm hear if want to talk or vent! Good for you being there, I'm sure it means a lot to him.
