I listened to your conversation after putting my husband to bed. He’s suffering from kidney failure which we’ve been dealing with for over two plus years. I recently had to make a decision to bring him home from the hospital despite the kidney doctor’s “bias.” Thank you for supporting me in my decision. I know I did the right thing.i

Barbara, home, surrounded by what he is familiar with is a beautiful gift you have given your husband. It will be challenging but having taken care of him for two years you know that. I hope you have hospice or an end of life doula and even a good friend to help you. My blessings are with you and your husband. If I can support you, use my personal email
