My mother is in very bad health with COPD and has been bad for the last year or two. In the last couple of months, however, her health has took a big turn for the worst. She is on hospice and has finally signed a DNR so at this point all they are doing is keeping her comfortable until she goes. She may go today, or may go in a month, but the nurses suggested that they call any family members that may want to be there. Even if she lasts two more weeks or two more months, I would love to be able to see my mom as there is a 99% chance this will be the last time I do see her alive.
The nurses have said her lungs are now failing and it won’t be much longer and the chaplain was there this morning. I appreciate organizations like yours more than you know and was not even aware it existed until a good friend suggested you.
Unfortunately I am only able to stay for 1 week due to not being able to afford being off work for much longer but a week is long enough to be able to spend time with my mom.
Thank you so much.
