I wanted to give Ken his own blog, away from my art blog and the outside world. Ken came home for Hospice on Fri., 5 February. They recommended hospice, because he started to lose a lot of weight. At this point, it is not evident if he is here to get better, to let go, or to 'hang on'. He still may need to go to another facility, at some point. But, for now, he is home with us. It is very tough work, but we are thankful for this time, where we can care for him.
Sometimes he is very lucid, and other times he is lost in his right or left brain/hemisphere. He told me today that he would like to forget about everything and hide in his brain. He told his childhood friend, Greg, yesterday, that every day he was getting better, ever so slowly, a little tiny bit each and every day.
So, why K-G Flake? Well, his initials being KG, makes sense, and everyone at work, I am told, calls him K-G. As for Flake, well, who has a nickname like that growing up, and doesn't mind it? I guess someone pretty comfortable in their own skin-back then. I don't think so right now. But, it was his nickname, and he wore it as a badge of honor. He approved of the blog title, so here it is-K-G Flake.
Welcome to our world.
