My mom is 89 and has end stage congestive heart failure. I took her from rehabilitate and skilled nursing home to live with me. The first week being home I had to take her to ER for low oxygen. She came home after a week on hospice care.
Two weeks later, I took her back to ER for a swollen arm. Doctors wanted to be sure of no clots before sending her home that night. Two weeks later my granddaughter called 911 because my mom was short of breath. Its been a week and my mom is gaining fluid each day with very little urine output. She has this cough that is fluid in her lungs. Today they told my mom she will die. My mom cried and cried and said she is afraid to die. How can I tell her not to be afraid? My heart aches. Thank you. Patsy
