Time to say good bye!

Hi folks,
Just letting you all know that I am now at end of life palliative care and am likely to be removed from my home at any time for a short stay in Hospice.
My time on this forum has been largely enjoyable. To the far too many to mention people who have helped or entertained me over many years. Thank you.
I am unlikely to contribute any further due to the stupefying effect of the morphine I need to take.

Very sorry to hear that John, I hope your stay in Palliative Care at the Hospice is peaceful and as pain free as possible. Thank you for being a friend. Good dreaming!

My goodness! Caught off guard reading that, Jaytee!!

But being the sort of human that leans toward being less than pragmatic in some matters, like health battles, I am also going with the already offered idea of staying positive and giving yourself a shadow of a chance that maybe you will be able to return to this community on/in this new nation called the Internet.

But the also offered wish that you are able to somehow reduce the pain you are incurring I second.

I sure haven't briefed myself on anything related to Hospice stuff, so wondering if you are able to get on the Net while you are residing there may be a stupid "wondering" but it sure would be super cool if you were able to use the Net in that residence.

A further thought, as this whole thread is starting to sink in; it strikes me as pretty cool that you did that post so we wouldn't be stuck in a puzzled world of "Where Did Jaytee GO?" --- Still I want to hold onto the belief Mother Nature or the Good Lord, or both entities, will grant you a few more years or so in a less pain situation and maybe even offer a bit of some fixing of health issues. See, now I am doing it again --- leaning away from being pragmatic.

But I must admit I am still very freaked out reading that post about the situation. Strange, that now I might know why my sleeping pill stopped working at midnight and now I am up at just after 2AM. Some entity wanted me to get on this site (wander into the community) and see your post, Jaytee.

Good gosh. Haven't been freaked out like this in a while.

Well, I just did something I haven't done in a long time --- I just did a prayer --- I sure don't do that often as I view that as pretty serious stuff and not to be done too often.
