No literary depth here - just an update:
Things are changing fast for Suvarnaprabha. She has asked not to have visitors for a while - she loves to see her friends but it is very tiring. She seems to be doing what the books tell us she will, going more inward. She sometimes sees things - they call it visioning and it's pretty common - and what she sees is quite lovely - beautiful trees on the ceiling, a bridge with her and her friends looking down at her - that kind of thing. She can still talk beautifully but it is hard for her to think and speak about anything that isn't happening right now. It is very important for her to get this blog published, but it's unlikely she will contribute much more herself. Candradasa and Vidyadevi are working on it.
The hospice nurse visited yesterday, and some of you know or guessed this already, but it seems the difficulty speaking and thinking is not the result of taking morphine, but is just the disease progressing, fatigue, and the natural dying process.
She is surrounded by family and, as has been said many times, more love than it's possible to imagine. She knows you all love her and she loves you back.
Between us Kathy, Paulette, Laura and I will try to keep this blog up-to-date.
All the best to you.
PS She has very little appetite too, just a bite or two of food now and then.
