This is a post we always knew would come, but it is still hard to write.
Based on Vanessa’s current symptoms, today our hospice team estimated that we are in our last few days with Vanessa. This week, everything has moved very quickly. We are so grateful for our families, who have rallied around us as we process this now rapidly changing situation. They have been with us through every emotion of the spectrum; just today we have all cried and laughed and been present to one another in such beautiful ways.
Thank you so much for your continued support.
Update: Vanessa took her last breaths on Sunday, Feb. 23, surrounded by love.
