Topic: Mom Receiving Hospice Care
I wanted to give an update on my mom. She was in a hospice care center for 11 days and we brought her home this past Wednesday. We have a hospital bed set up for her and the nurses come in to care for her. This is just so hard to deal with. I can't believe we are at this point. I knew it was coming, but I guess you just can't believe it. Mom has a drain tube from her stomach which is draining everything she takes by mouth into a bag. She has not really eaten in 13 days now. She drinks and takes small bites of some food, but it all just goes straight into the bag. She is such a trooper and has been so graceful through this all. We have been so blessed to be able to talk and spend this time with her. We love her so much. She had a long night last night as it was her first night back at home. She didn't get much sleep and she slept almost all day today. Not sure if it is due to lack of sleep from the prior night or if she is entering a new phase. Any thoughts? Family is in town so that is nice. They are so helpful.
Thanks for listening.
