Mom has rallied, is eating a little puréed food and might go home for Hospice after all! Of course, this could go downhill at any time. Today she's rational for the most part but has yet to gain control of her body and speech. Just in the five hours I've been here, her words are noticeably coming back. I found a plush kitty in the gift shop and she enjoyed that very much. I also got her a get well balloon to brighten up her room. We're really hoping most of her problem is the morphine slowly leaving her system. Sherrie is trying to arrange the live-in caregivers, a lift, a bedside table and a wide wheelchair to have them in place before they let her leave the hospital. She already has a hospital bed. I guess we will need the ramp finished after all!

I have been reading your other entries and my heart is breaking to hear that your mum is not doing well. :(
I'm so sorry hun.

It's a good thing she can leave the hospital but is she going to her own home?? Is there someone there to take care of her??

Hang in there okay? Love ya*

This roller coaster end game is the pits. Sorry you're going through it, too.

Yes, she is going to her own home. The company that has been providing home health care aids in the afternoons will provide two live-in aides for 24x7 care. My old room is the guest room where they will sleep. She wants to live out her life at home so that is what will happen. The Hospice people are providing all the furniture, devices and medications needed to keep her comfortable there.

I hope at home she'll be more comfortable.
