It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this post. After two horrible days of watching mom fight for breath, and the only options being hospital and ventilator or Hospice, Dad and I chose and called Hospice this morning.
What that means is that right now she is still here at home, and she is getting no meds/needles, etc., except those needed for pain relief. Mom’s mind was clear last night and this morning, and she knows and condones the choice we made.
Now it is in God’s hands – she is a strong woman, and even though her lungs and heart are working triple time, she could conceivably be with us for a month or more – but by the same token, she could be gone next week.
If you are close enough to visit, please do so…if not, please say a prayer that mom suffers no more – and that Dad and I are strong enough to get through this for her.
Thanks so much for your good wishes and prayers – they mean the world to us!
