Mom had a stroke Wednesday night. Now hospice in patient. Close to the end.

I just wanted to post on here that we are near the end now, and mom is resting comfortably. She no longer eats or drinks, can't swallow, and nurse can't get a blood pressure reading. She is actively dieing.

This forum has been such a HUGE help to me in the past several weeks. This journey has been the most difficult I have ever taken, and I wouldn't have made it without those who answered my questions and sent prayers. I am also very fortunate to have wonderful sisters who have had my back throughout.

Thanks to you all, and may your journeys in this caregiving world be quick and painless.
