Even In a sound sleep, you can't forget that you are a caregiver. In my deep sleep, I heard my husband call my name,in a voice that made my heart beat faster and a drop in my stomach. It was a dream, but my heart was still racing and I felt numb. .That's what it feels like to be a caregiver. A 24/7 responsibility. Never off the clock. I am so glad that it was just a dream, but it makes me sad to have these lingering emotions. I'll start my day now, always with the nagging thought that this might have been a really bad day for us.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
