Oh the Drama

Feb 11, 2010 - 1 comments

This last week has been "H"   "E"   double hockey sticks!

Between the comfort care for my Mom and the lack of support from my sisters.... it has been a battle of "wills"
(and "won'ts')  
Emotions are running high..mine especially.. as I just want to make sure that my Mom is comfortable in her end stage COPD but I am at the point that I just don't know what to do!  

Thank God for my husbands & sons support...

Whats a "daughter"  to do?!?!?

Welp... ole Mom seems to be hanging in there (*since my sister moved out)  My Mom just wishes that my sister would take her chickens back home! ..... standing joke at my Moms house) ... Arranged to have a company called Visting Angels come by and check on Mom during the day when we girls can't be there....We like them.. so far.. plus the care taker brings her little dog which my Mom seems to like...So... life is okay at the moment... and I feel very blessed for that....

Mom just recently decided to go off her breathing treatments... Albuterol and Atrovent....Which may or may not be good.... Whenever she has her breathing treatments she just gets all 'SHAKEY" and anixious.. Since she stopped doing them.. she seems to breath a little better BUT runs the risk of not being able to absorb the contanst oxegen she is on...The Hospice Nurse said that this falls all in to the realm of dying... just quitting..

Please hold lots of hopes and prayers towards my Mom.... I want my Mom to have an easy passing... i.e. she just falls asleep and doens't wake up.... that is my wish for her.... and her wish too!  

Hate to be a whinny person... but.. my Mom means EVERYTHING to me!  My MOM IS MARY POPPINS... PRACTICALLY IN EVERY WAY!
