Update on Mom

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to give you an update on my mom. I was able to get through to my dad about the slimfast. With a little help from mom too. I know she heard me talking to dad about not giving that to her and when he attempted to again, she shut her lips tight! He went back to lemonade and Mom seems good with that, that is what she has lived on for the past 2 months and all she wants.

Hospice told Dad on Friday that they didn't believe that Mom would make it through the weekend. Guess what.......once again she has proved them wrong. She is still stable and her vitals have remained the same. She has been doing more of the Cheyne-Stroke breathing but it seems to come and go. Hospice told my dad on Monday when they returned that they just cannot get over mom's resiliency (sp?) in May they told us less than 2 weeks and it is July 1, although we are so glad she is still with us, it is also very hard to see her suffering and in the condition she is in. I honestly don't think she is ready to leave dad. I have noticed that everytime he sits beside her or holds her hand or gives her a kiss she begins to cry. The love that the 2 of them have for eachother for 46 years and still strong is awesome.

Thanks everyone for your responses and thanks to Fresca for chatting with me on Friday.

We never outgrow our need for someone special to hold us and love us. Your parents sound wonderful and I'm sure they would say the same thing about their daughter. I pray you all have the strength and reserves you need to weather these hard times. Thinking of you...

Connie,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. This is such a difficult time, and it is touching to read about all the love that is around you.

Those of us who have been able to witness or experience true love are blessed. It is beautiful the love your parents have for each other, the love you have for them, and that flows between all of you. It is so obvious from your posts.

CONNIE,

I HOPE AND PRAY FOR A PEACEFUL SLEEP FOR YOUR MOM. MY UNCLE JUST RECENTLY PASSED AWAY AFTER 4 MONTHS OF HOSPICE THINKING IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN ANYTIME. (HE DID NOT HAVE CANCER) NO ONE KNOWS. ALL WE CAN DO IS PRAY THAT OUR LOVED ONES PASS OVER PEACEFULLY. GOD BLESS
