I have posted several questions about this and now I have another question. My mom, 69 with MS almost died this past week due to a medication screw up. On the four day of her not eating and she was unable to swallow or talk, I contacted hospice and they said they would sign her up the next day. The day after I contacted them, my mom started getting better and started eating and drinking a little. Hospice didn't contact me again until today. Today my mom is able to eat and drink. But she is bedridden now and very depressed. The nurse told me today that my mom said several times that she wishes she was dead. She was ready to die and I think she is disappointed to still be alive. Hospice talked to my moms PN who gave her the all clear to be signed up for hospice today. But now that she is eating and drinking I don't feel she needs it... but should I still sign her up? I really don't want my mom to go, but if she is ready I need to respect her wishes. Is hospice something that will help her pass away? :( i can clarify wherever I don't make sense so please ask any questions. It's been a long week.
