I recently spoke to some folks that I know read my blog. When I mentioned my prognosis from my clinic visit in February there were quite a few people that hadn't heard the news. It was buried as the last sentence in a blog post, so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised it was missed.
In February, I was told I have 12-18 months to live.
More recently, I have been taken under the wing of our local hospice. The decision to seek hospice care came about as my Doctor-ordered home care reached the limit of what my health insurance would allow. I feel fortunate, since we have a well-developed local hospice that receives a lot of support from the local community.
It has been a smooth transition, and the standard of care I've received has been fantastic.
