He did it all with a huge grin on his face. He loved it.
Now his world consists of a bed for 18 hours a day, with short trips to the big chair in the family room…catching a nap or two there. He’s already outlived his expiration date.
Flowers arrive on a regular basis. So far over 50 cards have expressed the love of others. And food…even though he says most foods taste like burnt cardboard (when did he ever eat that?)…is delivered to the door. Friends heard that he could taste strawberry milkshakes. Sometimes we had a backup in the refrigerator as shakes were dropped by for him. French onion soup delighted him. We now have several helpings in small meal size containers frozen and ready when he is.
But most of all…friends. Friends who care enough to take time out of their day to come, sit and chat. For a brief time each day, his world expands. He laughs. He tells his own stories.
