My prayers for strength and peace are with you.
Depending on your family's wishes and the state in which you live, your Mom can be brought home.
Hospice can come in and keep her comfortable, pain free. Hospice does not come just if people are dying, but
incapacitated and in degenerative condition.
Speaking with a social worker may help clarify your family choice.
In the end, it is all up to you.
I did it for my son.
It was his wish not to end up in a nursing home or hospital in constant decline.
My heart goes out to all of you.
Love is wonderful and painful all at the same time.
May you find comfort and peace, for all of you.
My mum has end stage MS.
She has lost the ability to eat (now using a peg), move her arms and speak in recent months. She is severely underweight. She already lost the ability to walk a few years ago. She seems to be in a lot of pain but she can't tell us if she is. I wondered, from experience, whether anyone can tell me how much time was between losing the ability to speak and then struggling to breath or death due to MS complications. It sounds awful but I want to be prepared. Thanks for your help.
