These days............

.....revolve around Leonard's life at the home.  My yard and flowers are drying up, I water when I can.  I try to keep Rascal's schedule as normal as possible - it's hard enough on him.  Leonard's legs continue to pour even though the nurses wrap them at least twice a day. Now it's getting excruciating to him for them to do it.  This past week and 1/2 have been so hard on him - he's had to make some terribly hard decisions - life decisions.  It might be easier if I could but he still wants to feel that he has a say in the matter.  I go home in the evening feeling completely useless.  It's hard right now.         Diane

I am so sorry Diane. I know you feel useless, but God is using you even though the road is so rough right now. You are in my prayers continuously, as is Len. God Bless You Diane. You are so loved by so many.

Let me just say that you are not useless. God has you right where you need to be right now.I do understand how you feel,it may be in part because you are so tired.Try not to stress about things like the yard and garden,there are more important things to focus on. You are loved and you are important.Sending big hugs and love your way,Diane.

A hard time for everyone right now; especially for Leonard having to go through the pain and the decision making. I hope you both find some peace in it all. Blessings, Tammy

You are definitely not useless and you give him comfort and love. This is so hard, I know because I went thru it with my Mom. Just be there, help when you can and stay strong. I am thinking of you each day. Love, Kit
