My mom is in really bad shape - send her prayers

#43339 2 years, 8 months ago
She's been in a nursing home for a few years now. She has dementia. Which is good though, she doesn't know what's happening to her, but she's in pain. I had to tell the doctors not to place a feeding tube in her, this is her wishes from earlier on, and I know I would just be insulting her by telling them to go ahead and do this. Everytime she eats, it goes to her lungs and it sounds like she's drowning alive (my dad went through the same thing). Please send her your thoughts and prayers.
I realize it's getting very close for her, but you know, we butted heads so much when I was a teenager, I expect her to live a long time just out of stubborness. Our arguements are legendary.

You're being a good son by following her wishes, as hard as it is. And something tells me that she looked back at those arguments with a great deal of fondness eventually. It's just very, very painful to lose a parent, no matter when or how. Sending lots of prayers and support to her, you and the whole family!! Take good care of yourself while you're caring for her!

Damn brother it must be hard. Hope you are going to be ok through this - she definately has a prayer from me. If you got any of your humor from her she must be a wonderful lady. you sound like a caring son.

I wish the best for you and your mother. I hope that she has as peaceful an exit as is possible. It sounds like an immediate departure would be best for all. Good Luck.

thanks for the prayers - usually I would post something totally juvenile or whatever you may call it, but for now, my humor level has been zapped.
