My mom is in the hospital. Everyone knows she's dying except for her. Everyone keeps mentioning hospice to me but then they order more tests and keep giving her treatments to live. She's confused sometimes but also lucid at others. She talks bout coming home and what she's going to do at home. She asked my friend yesterday who is a nurse if she was dying. She doesn't understand that she is but no one will come right out and tell her. Her kidney function is at 10 percent. Dialysis could kill her. I don't know what to do or what decisions to make. I don't have the heart to tell her this is the end. Any help with this is appreciated.
