Need a prayer

bud812bud812 Posts: 1,518
My family needs a quick little prayer from my fellow Eggheads. We brought my Mom home from the hospital Fri. with the help of hospice so she can die at home like she wants to. We hope it goes quick & peaceful. Got people coming in from Fla. & Az. so I am making pulled pork for people to munch on. They been on since 4 am & are just coming outta the second stall & climbing. I learned one thing about the DigiQ dx2 is dont use the ramp mode when you are going to be around as it started to ramp the pit temp down about the time the second stall hit. Now for a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat or six.

    Hope things work out okay, @bud812, as much as possible anyway. Never a good thing, but I hope everyone travels safely and that they bring you some comfort.

    Finally back in the Badger State!

    I am so happy to hear that she gets to pass in the comfort of home, friends, and family. I feel that this is one of the greatest gifts we can give a loved one in their final days. You'll be in my thoughts.

    You are doing a great thing for your loved one. I got married in the hope that someone will take care of my well marbled aging body when I'm at the end. In the Strickland family, taking care of one another is our highest calling. Altruistic, maybe not, but sweet none the less. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
