An End

Less than an hour ago, my patient died, in her sleep, and to all appearances at peace. It's a release from years of great physical pain, but we lose a very fierce spirit, an engaged mind, and more than 97 years of personal history. No posts for a couple of days, as things sort themselves out.

[Update: Thanks to all my friends/mates/buds who have commented, called, or mailed about this. You are true family - you're golden.]

Oh honey, I'm so sorry. Please let UC or me know if we can do anything or if you need anything.

God bless her, Grish. And God bless you. She had the best caregiver anywhere.
