Vicky Qualifies as a Hospice Candidate…

Vic's Final Journey

Schedule 6 medication – 28 days supply

Just seconds ago I was thinking “What a glorious wonderful day…” when the thought crossed my mind “Hang on a minute…. It is a glorious day because Hospice have agreed to evaluate my sick child????”

Hello!!! How sick is that that our lives has degenerated into a hellhole where Hospice is good news!!

I am a sixty something wife,mother, sister, grandmother and friend. I started blogging as a coping mechanism during my beautiful daughter's final journey. Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child.

  1. that any patient or their family has to be pushed so hard that being admitted in to hospice is a relief should be criminal. chris has from time to time along with my sister has asked why i can’t get assistance with hospice. to explain to them no matter my stage of kidney disease, internal bleeding, liver disease or achingly tired heart, a doctor would have to be willing to say i have less than six months to live. unless you are within breathes of death there isn’t a dr here who would commit to that.

    when i read that vic was in hospice i felt relief for you both. i still do. i think of vic every day and use her story whenever i feel it will make a difference in someones life. she lives on through her story. you are so amazing for continuing to give of your self and your beautiful vic.


    1. Yes I agree with you my friend. It is an absolute disgrace. Thank you so much for remembering Vic. You are the amazing one and I use your (and Julie’s) love stories where ever I can. I think of you every day and always sigh a sigh of relief when I see a new post from you! Much love my brave friend!
