Decisions, Decisions

Ian and I are of one mind as to the care of our father.  That is a very good thing.

The morphine, even at low dose, is easing his pain, allowing him to sleep, and keeping his oxygen connection in in place.  That's good.  

A chest x-ray taken this morning shows that our dad has pneumonia.  His MD wants to try 3 doses of an antibiotic, to see what happens.  He also agrees that Hospice Care is appropriate, based on the type of treatment plan we are following.  

The order has been written, and the wheels are in motion.  Staff from Oahu Care will contact St. Francis Hospice tomorrow.  From there .... one day at a time.  

I wish him a fearless mind and a peaceful heart.  

Don't forget to pray.
