ms.2ewo when using moniker you don't have to use name also because the word moniker means NAME. By you using moniker name is alot like stuttering.

You are so kind to take the time to inform me ...Thank you... I will try to keep that in mind.. but don't count on it, My husband tells me I suffer from brain farts. He should know after being married to him for 37 years he has passed it on to me....But I do have good days every now and then...Thank you, Peace be with you...

That's as if you can BE happy about dying from a "terminal" illness?
just because you are on hospice does not mean you are dying idiot, i myself had cancer and had hospice make home visits, do not be so ignorant and say that, because so many of us are still alive and so are the elderly couple in the paper with the article about hospice, they may even out live you, you dumb ass
good health

<quoted text>Diamond Dave, believe it or not when you are faced with a terminal illness, some thing takes over that is hard to explain. I can only call it (the comforter) I think the lord takes over and gives you the strength to deal with all that lays a head of you.. Its amazing ...
i totally agree, diamond dave has no sense. his comment is way beyond being self-centered.. yes, some patients who are terminally ill, do pass, but hospice is not just for dying people. termininally ill people sometimes even die of other causes other than cancer, it could be their heart, etc, even old age. with the grace of god hospice does not mean dying, people really over react and do not understand this, they should get educated on this subject, but until they walk in our shoes they will never know. and yes being on hospice it is very comfortable because the nurses and staff comfort us and others either with their kind words and their kindness, also with their gentle words of wisdom. and yes god has the last word, you may be terminal one day and may not have signs of cancer the next, that is what you call "FAITH"
