In November 2007,I admitted mother, into the hospital as a hospice patient. Her ulcer had become sepsis, and chances of survival was
none.Body functions began shutting down. She held our hands, as my brothers and I prayed and talked to her. Hospice tried to prepare us for her departure. It upset us to watch her body dehydrate, because she could no longer ingest anything, but she wanted food, everyday, for the last 3 wks. of life. I need
to talk to others, trying to cope as I am.
