Also, you can dye your hair all you want, but once you do it, you have to keep doing it and the longer you keep pretending you're not going grey, the worse the shock will be when you eventually stop.

I mean, this looks ridiculous and he looks very insecure, desperately trying to cosplay as himself circa 1981:


Whereas this looks like a badass, confident old guy who is perfectly secure in himself and where he is in his life:


I know which version I'd rather walk around as.

New job ?
Yeah, left the bedside after 13 years. I'm a hospice care planner now, AKA RN liaison. My job now is to talk to people with terminal illnesses, as well as their families, get them to consent to hospice services, and then present the case to the hospice MD for approval. Emotionally gripping stuff, but I just physically couldn't do the bedside anymore.

Hope that works out. A change is as good as a rest.

My dad just 'crossed the Jordan' a couple of weeks back (terminal bone cancer).

He spent his last few months in a hospice and they took excellent care of him.

Emotionally and physically, a difficult job.

I hear ya. No amount of rest was going to make me love my job again. And though this job does conflict in a way with my Evangelical beliefs, there is something to be said for acknowledging death as a part of life and coming to terms with that.

This new job does help me appreciate my family more, and not get so bothered about trivial things.

Also home every weekend and being able to get more involved at church was a big selling point, as was being home with my wife and boys every night.

It's hard work, but noble. A good friend of mine's mom died about a month back in hospice care. The hospice nurse that was there, and the entire staff, did so much for the family. Good on you for doing it, man.

A bit of that in my recent time with my dad.

He was lifelong devout, preparing for an afterlife in eternity and he was aware of my outlook on such beliefs.

I tried to concentrate on all the things we had in common. We had over sixty years of memories to reprise.

He did talk about which songs (and hymns) he wanted at his service and I made sure that it went exactly as he wanted. For him, it was a temporary parting ( he was an optimist), but for me, it was a bit more final, regardless of which one of us was right.


The staff at the hospice made sure that he had every possible easing on his passing. And although that that was their job, I was struck not just by their degree of professionalism, but also, as Kolya mentioned, by their nobility and dedication. It's certainly not a job for someone who is just there to draw a salary.

At any rate, as Hank Williams said, nobody gets out of this world alive. Death is a part of life .

Your new position will put more trivial matters in perspective on a daily basis, and "...being home with my wife and boys every night..." compensates for a lot of the tribulations of the job.

Best of luck with the transition!

Good post.


Not going to make it about me...but it reminds me of some things with my father at the end.
