MilliBr1 Posted October 16, 2005 Share Posted October 16, 2005 My mom fought hard and complained very little. Actually I can't recall her ever complaining. That is one of the things we heard over and over again when mom was in the hospital, nursing home, and now hospice, what a wonderful patient she is, so nice and never complains. Even when when she was parnoid on morphine the nurses said she still was always nice to them. It is so hard to watch these final stages. Each of us have been taking turns spending the night so she won't be alone. The nurse told me how touched she was to walk in this morining to see my dad sleeping in the chair next to her holding her hand. She has been trying to talk more but she is so weak it's hard for her to get the words out. It always lifts my heart to see her smile whenever the grandchildren come in and she whispers hello sweetie pie. Yesterday as we were leaving she woke up and gave each of us a kiss goodbye and she never fails to say I love you. I love you too mom and I am going to miss you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
