I would like you all to know that Ellen, for good reasons, supported by all those closest to her, has decided to discontinue all medical treatment other than that directed at her comfort and pain relief.
This struggle has now been going on over a year and a half. Ellen has throughout conducted herself with dignity, kindness and intelligence.
Today, we sat a long time on the back porch looking at flowers and birds ands green grass. It was hard for Ellen, because she is losing her sense of sight.
But we loved it.
And when it started blowing and thundering, then pouring very cold rain, who wanted to stay out under a poncho and an umbrella, to experience a Rocky Mountain thunderstorm?
Ellen, of course.
And it was a good decision.
Our gratitude for your caring grows by the hour.
Much love from both of us.
