Joanne returned to Pasqua Hospital today and is comfortable now in the Palliative ward. Her room is peaceful and the ward is well equipped to make it easier on everyone. Her symptoms are being well managed and she is now better able to focus her energy.
In the midst of yet another difficult day, Joanne was able to find some peace and even told Mom that “today was sweet” (a reference to one of Joanne’s favourite books, “If Today Be Sweet” by Thrity Umrigar – see blog posting dated Sunday, August 11, 2007 in Joanne’s book of the week blog). We agreed with Joanne that tomorrow would be sweet as well. All continue to do what is possible to make that be.
