Dotty is Still With Us, 5:08 AM, Dotty Continues to Amaze Me

I will discuss crisis care with Hospice by the Sea today. If I get the assurance that I get to make the veto call on the drugs; and that, the crisis care nurses will be instructed by Hospice about our wishes before they come in, I'll accept the crisis care.

It is 5:08 AM, Wednesday, May, 23, 2012, Dotty is still with us. Dotty continues to amaze me.

I fell asleep for a couple of hours. I think I was dead out (no pun). My head and body are parallel to Dotty. She is in a hospital bed and I am in her bed. Our heads are about five feet apart, on a direct straight line.

I feel like a cat. I wake up and it seems like my ear shoots up into the air, and turns to listen to Dotty. Just like a cat.

She is breathing in a perfect rhythm. I can't believe it. I listen for a while. Perfect. Perfect cadence. Music to my ears.

What the heck.
