Hello. Well my 94 year mother came out of the hospital after pneumonia and a urinary tract infection and into a nursing home for long term care. And after a few days in the nursing home they are recommending hospice! She is really in a bad way. Barely eats, dementia, can't hear well, stenosis, her oxygen is low, and blood pressure is low.
And the strange thing is the day she went into emergency for pneumonia, that afternoon I was visiting with her and she could carry on a conversation and walk, all very normal, just mild dementia!
I am the only family member and I feel like I've been run over by a tank several times. It's all very traumatic for me. I don't know what to do for my mother and how to handle the emotions. The nursing home is very good, highly rated. I wish she would pass on soon. I know she is suffering.
Can anybody give me some advice please?
