Hello....my name is Paula. I am a middle-aged (whatever than entails in this day and age) wife and grandmother. My husband, Richard had end-stage Parkinson's disease and entered into Hospice in March 2013. I quit working as a full-time RN to stay home and take care of him. Hospice provided us with the supplies and medications that we needed to provide him with the comfort and care he needed. I am also raising two of my nine grandchildren. Darian is 16 and is a junior in high school. Harley is 14and an ninth grader. They have lived with us almost 6 years. Here on my blog I like to chronicle our life. The Good, Bad, and the Ugly! Richard died on July 21, 2014 so I chronicle all of those details as well. I hope you stay around and visit for a bit.
