Hospice

Friday, September 06, 2013

I wanted to blog tonight but I am sitting here not even able to figure out a title.
Time is running so short now. Timothy's mom was doing well last week Friday. They were talking of releasing her from the hospital last Sunday and then getting chemo started. Plans change very quickly.
She was awake and able to hold lucid conversations on Friday and by Sunday, she was unable to communicate.
She has not been able to eat for a couple of weeks and on Wednesday they removed her i.v. and transported her to a hospice facility.

Today was a rough day. Her breathing has been very labored and she stopped breathing for a minute today. After she started breathing again, they came in and repositioned her and she is finally breathing a bit easier. They have also increased her medication for pain and anxiety so she is very comfortable.
We are spending the night in her room tonight.

There is so much love in this room...just to be here to witness it, much less be a part of it...there are no words to describe it. It just fills my heart so full.
The hard part for those of us she will be leaving behind is quickly approaching.
Thank you to everyone for all the prayers comments and messages they mean so much.

Irene, you are so loved and it is amazing to a part of your story.
