Her body no longer produces enough red blood cells to survive. My very difficult question is how do I know when to stop the transfusions and let her go? I lost my dad in June to dementia and I am dreading losing my mum. She is now unable to walk without falling and cannot form a sentence. She is in a 24 hr care facility. She can still enjoy music, chocolates and visits. I feel like I am being judged for keeping her alive but I just don’t feel like I can end her life. She is 82 and I love her so much. She has been a wonderful mother and I can’t bare to make this decision. She is not in pain or mental anguish as of yet. The Dr’s say it’s up to me and I have to do what feels right. Some family say she wouldn’t want to live this way. I am her guardian so it’s completely up to me. No other children. My heart is broken.
