Hospice for Papa

On Monday of this week, my sisters, mum, and brother-in-law ran Skype from my father's nursing home in Kearney, Nebraska so we could listen to the presentations of two hospice providers.  The long and short of it is that these are Papa's last days.  Various physical functions are shutting down, more and more frequently and in greater degree.  I was impressed by the presentations of the providers and am feeling assured that these providers will improve the quality of Papa's life, making his final days easier and more comfortable.  Naturally, I wish I could be with my family during this period but I am also impressed by the skills my family is demonstrating in the ways they are dealing with  this tough situation as calmly and rationally as they are at this time.  

Currently, my plan is to return for Papa's funeral.
