Once Again

Once again, the call; the hospice nurse doesn't expect Dad to be alive by this time tomorrow. Once again, I don't know if anybody is crying wolf. This time, it's clear he needs antibiotics (has a very high fever). Perhaps, with antibiotics, he could recover once again from whatever infection this is. Once again, nobody has mentioned to me yet whether he is to receive any.

Once again, Demetrios and I will drive up there this evening.

Once again, please keep praying.

Oh Anastasia, how difficult for you, your family and your dad. I recall when we signed the papers for mom to go into hospice this was one exception we refused to agree to...the withholding of antibiotics. We didn't have a problem with not treating the cancer but infection was quite another story. I had to write some special language into the contract. Check this out and see if there is anything you can do at this point.

In the meantime, prayers for your safe travel and for your father.
