I've missed all of you

Hi everyone,
I've missed all of you. I have been spending my days and nights at the hospital with my mom. We took her last monday night thinking she might have the flu, and now we will be bringing her home tomorrow to keep her comfortable til she goes to join my dad. She has congestive heart failure and has stopped drinking and eating. She knows we are there, but sleeps most of the time. The priest came this evening and gave her last rites, and it seemed to calm and quiet her. My sister will be staying here for awhile and will help me care for her. Hopefully tomorrow she can come home. I have to wait til I talk to hospice and see about a hospital bed for her and then we will see what we can do. I'll try to come say high..I've missed all of you so much.You've know idea how comforting it is to know you have a family here on DC to turn to when you need them..Thank you
hugs to all

kadesma

I have missed you too, but knew you were very busy the last time we heard from you. My prayers are with your mother and you as you provide care for her, also for the rest of your family as they are able to help out. Thanks for letting us know. I know what it is like to care for a family member at the end of their life and know it can be a very meaningful time. Best wishes.

Kads.....my prayers are with you mom, you and your family. I know how hard it is to care for an ailing parent, I took care of both my parents prior to their passing. Hospice is a god send and they will really help you through this time. Be sure to lean on your other family members also if possible. Don't try to do it all by yourself okay. Take care and let us hear from you when you can. Again, my prayers are with all of you. Huge Hugs!
