My Mom was put into hospice today. The doctors say there is nothing they can do but keep her comfortable.
Her liver and kidneys have failed, Next is her lungs and heart. She is on a no resuscitation code and as a family we are respecting her wishes to not hook her up to machines to extend her life. She is ready to go, as she puts it. Mom has refused dialysis for the past year and at 85 I think she has the right to make that decision for herself and we as a family need to respect that.
Respecting that is one of the hardest things we have done as a family but my brother will be here from Arizona in a few days and I think that is what she is waiting for, the family to once again be together.
