When I looked at my Facebook memories this morning, I realized that it was three years ago today that we made the decision to go ahead and start Tom on hospice. Sometimes I look back and wish we’d done it sooner, but Tom wasn’t ready, and I felt like it needed to be his decision.
At the time, we had people pushing us to put him on hospice and it made an agonizing decision even harder.
If you know someone struggling with these kinds of decisions, be supportive without being pushy. Let them know you love them and support them, no matter what decision ends up being made.
We made the decision that was right for us at the time. That’s all anyone can do. The journey is hard enough without having other people butting in with their opinions and beliefs.
