crystleshoe Posted November 20, 2006 Share Posted November 20, 2006 how can 1 day things be going so well and then in a matter of a day or so things are going so bad? My mom has been in the nursin/rehab center for 2 weeks now(after being in the hospital for 4 weeks) and i feel like she will never be home again. I was hoping that shed be here for thanksgiving but instead i have to bring thanksgiving dinnere there for her and my dad cuz he wont leave her. I went to spend tuesday with her because i didnt have to work. She was up and dressed and working with the physical threapist(which is another thing that i dont understand why is she is so weak). on Wed. dad said she had another good day. Thursday they worked with her and getting in and out of the car cuz we have to take her to chemo Mon, Tues and Wed. Well on Friday my sister(who lives in Nh also) and my self had been callin and calling her with no answer. Finally I called the nurses station and found out they moved her to another room still we did not talk to her so we decided to drive down(to MA) and check on things. We get there and she is in bed looking awful and dad says she hasnt eaten all day. Now im really ticked off and go find a nurse who tells me that she has c-dif(an infection in her intestines) causing diahrea and they have her on antibiotics (again). My sister went down again today and called me after her visit. Mom wont eat and says shes not going to chemo and why dont we all just leave her alone. My dad is exhausted and doesn know what to do. Sometimes i think she just wants to die and i dont think it will be lung cancer that kills her it will be her own lack of fight that will get her in the end. She is only 70 and she has just about givin up. And now i feel bad cuz im mad that she is being so selfish and wont fight this disease for my dad and shes not thinking of the hell she is puting us thru. I mean i know she has lung cancer and that sucks but it is only in 1 lung and has not spread anywhere else and she could probably live a lot more years. sorry this is so long but my thoughts just ramble sometimes.
