Re: SENSITIVE-Dreaming & Talking
I've been away from the board since before Thanksgiving. It was a tough time for our family not having Mom here for the holiday, and I've been keeping my mind busy with work and Christmas preparation, not much internet time.
But I wanted to share what we experienced... What you describe sounds very similar to what my mother did the two weeks or so before she died. The confusion was first, which actually started when we were still on the family cruise. Once we were back home and she was in her comfy hospital bed, she slept a lot that first day, then more confusion, babbling, talking coherently but not making a lot of sense, calling out "Daddy." Later that week she was staring more, almost like asleep with her eyes open. Agitation increased, she kept telling us to get her out of bed so she could go sit in the chair, which would've been impossible due to her weakness. By Friday, she spent most of her time asleep, which could have partially been due to all the medication. She died late Sunday afternoon, and we didn't see any bluish signs until an hour or two before, and even then it was just her fingernail beds. Also that last day her hands and feet were cold.
I don't want to make anyone sad or worried, I just thought sharing our experiences may help someone reading now or down the road.
