Update

I just wanted to drop one last quick update to all of you who have been so caring and supportive over the last few months.

This week was emotional, as many of you know Peter has been quickly declining and I was unable to care for him as well as I wanted to and made the hard decision to move him to the hospice in-patient unit. 

He was very comfortable there and the nurses were wonderful.  I was able to sit by his side and be a wife and hold is hand rather than try to be a caregiver.

On Wednesday I went to see him and he asked me to lay in bed with him, he put his arms around me and rubbed my back.  That was the last hug I got from him.

Sadly, he passed away at 3:00 a.m. this morning.

Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes.  Knowing so many people were thinking of us made this difficult time a little more bearable.
