My Mom was assessed a week ago by a Nurse Practicioner and has been accepted into Palliative Care. She is not Hospice ready. According to the NP, Mom is stage 6c. But the NP did say that Mom will be ready for Hospice care soon, not because she is EOL but because she will benefit from hospice services.
At this point, I will take any and all help, even though Mom is well cared for in her AL facility. As you see from my prior posts, Mom is now attached to a doll. I'm so tired, and God forgive me, I want relief for her from this horrid disease. She will be 85 in March. I see her declining more and more with each visit. She is now starting to lose her words. She tries to tell me something and when she can't complete her thought she says, "I don't know." My heart is past being broken. I want to laugh again. I want to sleep again, and I want to move forward with my life and my husband.
I know that her end will come, and I pray that I have no regrets in wanting peace for her.
Thank you for listening.
