Hospice

Saturday, January 31, 2015

They called hospice yesterday. She will be going home to her daughters. She is able to talk and interact with people and make her own decisions and she doesn't want any life saving treatments. They are taking her off the Bipap and removing the catheter today. She can't breathe for very long without the bipap.
She was doing so well! I thought she was getting stronger and would be able to come home, but I didn't know they would remove the bipap and put her on just oxygen. They already said she can't breathe on just the oxygen for very long.
I want to go see her but now I am getting a cold or something and I can't risk her catching anything. I hope it's just the news that is making me sick and not a virus or anything. I haven't been able to talk to her daughter since they had the meeting with the doctor, but my other sister told me on the phone what she had decided.
Thank you all for your prayers and spark goodies and support and encouragement on my page! You don't know how much you all have helped me get through this. It's really therapeutic to be able to come here and talk about what is going on and having so many care and respond to my posts. I really appreciate all of my spark friends!
