We went to the boat yesterday and spent the night. It was good to get out of the house and change our routine. We ate steamed oysters, homemade vegetable soup and had a good breakfast this morning.
Just for today neither of us talked about the dead or dying. It has felt like a near normal day. I did visit Pop and fed him some lunch, ice cream and a fruit cup. He ate with some enthusiasm, like a bird opening its mouth with each morsel coming near.
This coming week we will start the sad task of going through clothes and packing up Mom's personal items. Both my wife and I agree that we will take our time and not push ourselves. There is no immediacy really.
I heard from my cousin's wife that he is still in ICU with a ventilator and feeding tube. She said that he has a living will; but she is choosing to disregard it, convinced that he will become healed. I am sad that his wishes are ignored, and he basically is being kept alive until his brain is killed by the tumor. I suppose one has to make sure that the living will is ironclad and the person entrusted to carry it out will indeed do that. Once again, I have to let go of this situation.
Anyway, I hope that you are enjoying your Sunday. We have had a nice day.
