Simply the Word Blessing
I never thought I would be in hospice care but last December I was given two weeks to live. I had been in and out of the hospital most every month during 2019 and my body was not tolerating cancer treatment. When my wife, Louise and I first met with the nurse from Hospice of Southern Illinois, I politely declined their services. The nurse was nice and explained everything to me but I wasn’t ready. I had seven different doctors and I went to several appointments a week. How could I just stop going to all of them? You see, I literally thought hospice care meant that you went home, a volunteer came and sat with you and waited for you to die. Boy, was I wrong.
” If I had to describe my experience with Hospice of Southern Illinois in one word, it would simply be the word blessing.“
