Eight weeks ago my mother in law was walking, albeit precariously, with her walker. She had several falls and worried us to death by getting up on her own. She got a hospital bed through hospice and now she is confined to bed, except when we help her up to the recliner. She cannot get up on her own anymore. She is confused most of the time now, and I can deal with that when she is content, but being confused and distressed is definitely the hard part. Yesterday she was crying out, Help me! I need to get out of here! I’m dying. I’m so afraid!
We prayed together, as I strongly desire for her to be comforted in her fears and she is also a praying person. But we also went with medication to help calm down the outburst. So then she was just sleepy. This situation can be depressing. I’m sure there are others out there experiencing similar things. This is not so much a question as it is reaching out for moral support.
