Prayers sent. I'm so sorry to
Prayers sent. I'm so sorry to hear that you do not have support. That is scary. My husband (30 yrs in July) has been hospitalized since Aug. Many times I was to to prepare myself. He wasn't expected to make it. We still have a rough ahead. Short term they think now he'll pull through this event but beyond that the prognosis is poor. No family. No friends. The nurse sometimes brought me a warm blanket. I had always heard positive things re hospice care. Is there someone else there you could speak with? How are you pets? I find our 4 cats a great source of comfort. I don't get to see them much as I spend so much time as the hospital. A pet sitter watches them when I can't be there.
