Time to Let Go

I just got a call from the nursing center.  My mom has now missed three dialysis treatments in a row (which I did know about), and she missed a few before that as well.  Basically, she is choosing to let go now.  The nurse wanted to let me know, and to ask if they could contact hospice to come in for her.  Of course, I said yes.  The lack of treatments is causing her to become increasingly confused, and she will need the special care that hospice provides.

This is REALLY hard, and I'm not as ready to deal with it as I thought I was.  If you are able and willing, I would greatly appreciate any prayers/energy/whatever that you can send to both her and me to help us get through this as painlessly (at least for her) as possible.

Thank you SO much for all the support you've given me.  It has really helped a lot.  And if I can return the favor in any way, please let me know.

  2. Its hard decision for anybody sometimes people are sometime ready to go, especially if they have been suffering from long term illnesses. From what I've seen death is never a nice experience but sometime it can the best as the person is released from their suffering.

    I wish you best for this difficult transition, I hope you both find peace and comfort, I send my thoughts and strength to you, take care

    1. Thank you. Nope, no matter how much we "prepare" for things like this, we're not really ready for it to happen.

  8. I'm so sorry, Lucretia! I can honestly say that I have an inkling as to how you're feeling because my father is basically doing the same thing. May things work out in the best way possible for you, your mom, and the rest of your family!
