Kacy,

I look forward to seeing them, thank you!

Hugs,
Michael

Well we have some encouraging news. Mysteria and I, after talking to Michael for a few minutes, were given permission to call a Hospice for him.

I found a Hospice not too far from his house and Mysteria called them. It is the Spirit Of Living Hospice. She talked to the head of admissions and explained the situation and told her that Michael has many caring friends who are worried about him. The lady agreed to look into it for us.

Later, she called Mysteria back and told her that Michael does qualify for assistanced at their Hospice. Michael gave her his wife's phone number at work and his wife, Mary, gave them permission to talk to Michael's doctor about where to go from here. She will followup with us when she has looked into this, talked to the Doctor and met with Michael.

We'll keep you updated - keep the prayers coming!

You sweet, generous ladies have done the right thing.

It is comforting to think that our dear Michael will get the perfect assistance he needs.

Our Lord of Heavens enfold Michale with your love and healing power. Amen.

Love, Margherita

Sharon & Mysteria, that was a wonderful, caring gesture. I am so glad to hear that Michael has help near him. Thankyou both so much.
  Michael, you are still in my daily thoughts and prayers! hugs, Chris

Michael, I can only pray you're getting the help you so much need at the moment. You and your loved ones are in my thoughts every day.
Warm hugs from this side of the ocean.

A little update ~ I spoke with the lady in Admissions at Spirit of Living Hospice as she called to tell me that they were meeting with Michael and his wife this week.  So all we can hope is that Michael will be given the care he deserves after that meeting.  

She did suggest however that if anyone wished to know the outcome, or more details of the meeting, they should contact Mary, Michael's wife.  I suppose for confidentiality reasons this is the proper protocol, so I would imagine that Martie will probably be doing that so I too will await hearing the outcome of that visit by Tanya, the hospice intake worker.  I sincerely hope all is well.

Poet de Vine and Mysteria are what this caring *home* has always been about.  Yes, it's a home, not just a bunch of personalites, strangers, but true hearts.

The hospice visited yesterday and will be doing so again later in the week.  They will be giving me a hospital bed for my room here and will be coming by to check on me, to see if there's any way they can make me more comfortable, be it medication, or just a friendly face, someone to talk with.  I have to admit that I was impressed by their caring and felt they were very sincere.  

The hospice worker I met was only given 6 months to live and three years later is still here helping others who are in need.  I feel, even though I don't know his faith, that He's doing God's work.

I can't begin to tell Poet deVine and Mysteria just how much their caring is so much appreciated.  They are both very great ladies, the best, the true heart of what's always made Passions the finest poetry site on the web.  That caring and help is now helping to lessen some of the fears my family has been having, especially the fears of my only child, Chris.  I applaud these wonderful ladies and friends.  God made none any finer!

It's true I'm dying, I've finally accepted that, but at least I'll be able to do so now with some dignity still left intact and not suffer as much as I would normally have had to.  That in itself is an abolutely tremendous blessing.

I DO have much fear, that's a given.  I feel any of us would, especially those of us with young children.  Even for those of us who believe in the Lord, dying is still a terrifying thing, but especially so when we're leaving behind a child we know we're not going to be able to raise into an adult.  

I'll never be able to spoil my grandchildren, because I don't have any yet.  I'll never be able to teach my son to drive.  I'll never see him with his first girlfriend.  There's SO much I'll never get to see and it breaks my heart even thinking about it.  Right now I'm not voicing these things to family, but only trying to survive and stay as strong as I can for as long as I can.  

I feel like a person on death row, but unlike death row, I'll not be given stay, after stay, after stay for execution.  One night the lights will just dim and I'll be gone.  I know that, can feel it now, no matter how hard I struggle against it.  Still, I fight, I must!

I only wish I was able to adequately convey just how much each of you have always meant to me and how much I've always loved this home of ours.  

God bless and thank you, my friends,

Michael

Michael, you have done well here. We all love you and keep praying for you and the family. We know how you feel. The love is felt across the miles.

I would trade places with you if I could.

You are in my heart, and always will be.

love,

Michael, those were the most eloquent, soul-touching and heart-tugging words that I have ever read. I am so choked up right now that I can scarcely breathe.

The power of Spirit is coursing through you and you have two devine and mysterious Sharon angels by your side! Thank goodness that they were able to get you the added help that you and your family need. Bright rays of sunshine do somehow manage to burst through dark clouds.

Loves & healing hugs,
Linda

I am so glad that you have hospice with you now, Michael.  I know this organization is made of people with kind hearts and information that will help you.  Thank you, Sharons, for making sure that they know about Michael.

Dear Michael, I am so glad that the two Sharon's helped you with getting the Hospice arranged. They are a very caring and devoted group of people. I came into close contact with them a few years ago when Gary's Grandmother was so ill.

Michael, my thoughts and prayers are with you every day.
Heart hugs and love,
Ethel

Hi Michael,
I thought that you might like to see a few pictures that
I took of the sunset across the bay.

Just wanted to let you know that you're still in my thoughts and prayers.
Heart hugs and love,
Ethel
