My soul mate and I had to make a heart wrenching decision and that is to put him into a nursing home. Hospice convinced us it's time and he needs round the clock care now. His doctor called me today and said there is nothing more she can do for him. I know in my heart that Earl isn't going to get better but I think I've been in just a little bit of denial because he's always come through whatever God handed him. Cancer more than once, a blood infection, open heart surgery, numerous other ailments. Deep down I have to believe he will come through this, too.
