Mom went into hospital Sunday. They think her hernia is causing bowel obstruction. Still hasn't gone back to normal on its own. Tube in nose to stomach. Social worker just called. Mom can't make decisions to have operation. She would have to be incubated for a while. Said dad was in pain from that. Other choice is hospice in a facility. She told hospital staff not to call me. Fine with me. She probably wouldn't be swayed by what I said anyway. I'm voting for hospice. Tube cant be left in too much longer. Irritated her nose. She may not be able to talk eventually. Mom says she cant make her decision yet. She has terrible time making hard decisions. And this is especially hard. Just wanted to talk to someone. Thans for listening.
