The living must go on living

More than a year ago, I signed up for an Adriatic cruise. Ten days before my departure date, J was placed in hospice care.

J has stabilized and here I am on a plane headed for Venice, but not without mixed feelings. I have strongly urged our adult children that the living must go on living. The hospice nurse has urged me on, stating with confidence (although she never knew her before Alzheimer’s disease) that J would want me to go.

Flaps up. Fingers crossed. Stay tuned.
