Feeling Old/Strange/Guilty

It’s official, my ex-husband is now living in a care center, aka nursing home.

How many 43 year olds can say that????

He was admitted this morning while I was at work. I called him this afternoon and he sounded confused and asked if he had to stay. I discussed this with him last night and also this morning – we are doing it because he is not in control of his medications.

A couple weeks ago the nurse said the cancer was moving quickly, and in all honesty, I really hope it is….for everybody’s sake. His pain is increasing and I’m sure this wasn’t the way he wanted to spend the last days of his life.
