Thank you all. It does help to read your kind words. Two nights ago my dad couldn't sleep and was in bad back pain. He's now on morphine and ativan and slept most of yesterday and today. Hospice says to just make him comfortable. My mother and I were caring for him since his last hospital stay last week. Prior to that last hospital stay he was still able to walk although he had slowed down a lot in the last month. My two brothers are here now since yesterday and are staying to help. We're all sleep deprived - trying to give each other rest, but it's hard to sleep. It breaks my heart to see my dad in pain and discomfort. Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts.
