Hubby on hospice now. Nurse says stable, but lately he's been falling asleep morning and afternoon as well as sleeping at night. Also recently he's leaning even more to the right. He does eat and drink except fell asleep during lunch today. I have to leave town and am so afraid he will die while I'm away but there are a couple of things that simply must be attended to. I'll be a day's drive away and I do so want to be here with him. I know it can't be predicted with certainty though, and I don't think he's "actively dying". I am fortunate that he is in the hands of truly loving caregivers but I'm supposed to leave tomorrow morning and I just can't hold the tears back.
