Hi. Thanks for all the great advise given to me on this forum regarding the situation of my mom being in a physical therapy re hab. UPDATE:
After week 4, she is still in this rehab with a discharge date of this week.
I am having a hard time dealing with all of this. According to the facility, its a patients choice to make decisions on what they eat there. She tells me of the hot dogs, tacos, hamburgers, fries, sausages etc... that she orders for food. I look at her left ankle and its the size of a softball. I am having a hard time accepting the fact that she doesn't care. Is she being cruel to her children by not taking care of herself?
My brother told me that when my mom was first admitted to the hospital 5 weeks ago, they asked her if she had suicidal thoughts. She looked at my brother and started to cry saying shes a Christian and she cannot commit suicide because she will not go to Heaven to be with my Dad.
How am I supposed to accept the fact that she is slowly killing herself? Everyone else is accepting this fact but me. My psychologist told me to accept it as well. I feel angry. How do I come to terms with this? Thanks so much.
