Mom Update

I don't want to burden most of my flist with these updates, but I have friends for whom this is their primary source of information on my family. If you are not interested, please disregard these updates.

Mom's family doctor visited yesterday and is coming back to put in an IV port so we can give Mom her pain meds when she can't swallow.

The whole family got together with her last night (minus two hubbies) and she restated that she does not want to be here any more.

Mom has said her goodbyes to everyone and is now refusing food. She takes a little water but is dehydrated. My sister is in from Toronto caring for her.

You're not being a burden at all, so please don't worry about the updates. I, for one, am very grateful to receive them.

I can only imagine how painful this must be for you, but I think you can take comfort knowing that your Mom is surrounded by family and her pain is under control. I'm guessing that having a chance to say goodbye to family members probably brought her some peace.
Thank you. She had everyone here and got all her goodbyes in.
*hugs* It's more about making her comfortable while she is still here, not looking for ways to prolong the stay. You know me, I beleive in honouring the wishes of the person in question, as difficult as that can be to do sometimes. It is good that she can have her family around her to say her good-byes.
We are definitely not trying to prolong things.

Thank you for the hugs.
