The hospital called this morning and said hubby had been discharged back to the nursing home. He is no longer a psychiatric patient and not combative. They said to get in touch with hospice. The hospice guy came this afternoon and got us started. Hubby knew who we were and he talked the entire day. Constantly, the whole time and when I left tonight he was still talking. The boys and I got a kick out of him. No matter what happens we had this great day with him. Hospice said 5 to 7 days. No one knows for sure about these things but he is not eating or drinking anything. I tried to get chocolate pudding down and some ice cream and no go. He pushes your hand away and gets mad at you. It was a hard day and seemed to come out of the blue that he was back here. We were planning on a meeting up at the hospital instead. I will be taking a break for a while and going to spend all my time at the NH with him. When they start him on his meds he will most likely be sleeping a lot but I want to be there.

Thank you all for the love, prayers and comfort you have sent me. I love you all and will try to update in the evenings.
