My dad, 76, passed August 14th, mom, 66 years young, had a massive stroke August 31. She was DNR, DNI, no feeding tube, no artificial means. I had the doctors try a feeding tube, I had to. It gave no positive results so I had it removed after a week. I don't know how long we have. To lose them both so close is devastating, but I have emotionally shut down, I haven't even cried over daddy yet. I am struggling with removing the feeding tube even tho it was moms wish. Her pain is so great I cannot even hug her. Her heart and lungs seem strong, but physically she has lost alot of mobility, mentally she is almost completely disconnected, left eye blind, no ability to swallow. I'm lost - if anybody has experience with removing feeding tubes and what happens now as we are in Hospice care, please share. I know once I let my emotions come back I am going to crumble.
