Teresa, you may not be able to 'converse' but please remember that he can hear you. Talk to him even if he doesn't seem to hear, tell him that you love him and tell him that you are going to be ok. He will hear you. Glad Hospice is working out well.
Teresa, about 1 week before Teddy passed I just had to sit down and write a poem, I think you will relate:
Time is growing closer, I can see it in his eyes,
Time is growing closer, but we’ll have no sad ‘goodbyes’.
Memories abound from our precious moments spent,
To God it is, I’m sending, the most “precious” package sent.
These last few months of knowing, we’ve made a honeymoon,
In my mind a vision of an eternal, beautiful afternoon.
He is still my charming Prince, who taught me how to love,
And someday we’ll be together, in Heaven up above.
I will see him riding stars, I will see him in the moon,
And someday you will see us dancing to our favorite tune.
He will touch my face so gently, like he’s known to do,
It’s not goodbye forever, with memories bad or few.
All our love, my sweet one, is ours to hold so tight,
Until once again together on a mystical, magic night,
We will be again united to celebrate our dance around the sun,
And know that our eternity together, has only just begun.
Teddy ~In our hearts forever~ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING
