On November 16, three months ago today, we took Caitlin to the hospital for the last time.
Now we are finally back in Pittsburgh, packing up our apartment. I’d been sick with dread, anticipating this, but I knew it was necessary to do it personally. My sister and brother-in-law are helping us, and that means everything. Also, our neighbors in this building, and the management team that runs it, are incredibly kind and supportive.
We were grateful for this place. Caitlin was so comfortable here. She was able to easily move between the living room, kitchen, her bath and bedroom.
It was pet-friendly.
It was exactly what she needed, what we all needed.
Over time, the good days here will be what we remember best.
