Closing the loop – the last P – Parting

By December 28, 2014Caregiver, ePatient, Family man
Closing the loop with grief. The P’s of dying pile up – the first six P’s from my mom, the last two from others: Pillow, pills, pee, poop, pain, phone + pistol and peace. Now we deal with Parting. As an experienced observing participant, parting offers a re-entry atmosphere of connection, exhaustion, awkwardness, ambivalence, busyness, reminiscence, and loneliness. I’m hoping next week to focus on a different  topic in my post. Thanks to those of you who have shared this journey with us and commented. Living and parting go together. Oh, ma.
