From A Patient
“We are sending you home now to get your affairs in order. We think you should consider Hospice care.”
My response was immediate, “So I am dying in the next few days?” The response was direct and simple…”you have a bit more time than that.”
My Dr. found a place that actually served patients in small towns in rural America. Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice.
So the journey began. The staff is friend, knowledgeable and above all, real. My case is different. I am younger and not a cancer case. They have taken the time and effort to come up with answers, solutions and plans for my diagnosis. Death doesn’t come with a manual….it doesn’t come with steps it doesn’t come with anything. You have to wear it, to live it, and to embrace it. Everyone has their own thoughts on this but to know the people from Harry Hynes are on this journey with me is a fabulous feeling. It doesn’t give you a warm fuzzy feeling like purchasing a new car. But to know you won’t be alone and are in good hands is a peace of mind that can’t be replaced. They camein as strangers and quickly became family.
Thank you Harry Hynes for caring about rural America and me.
