Re: funeral planning

My mom does not have covid, but is in hospice. She's been there for 3 weeks and is declining.


Thank you everyone who has given me support in the past.

Re: funeral planning

I'm so sorry, snafu. I'm here if you need anything.

Are you able to be with her?

Re: funeral planning

They currently have a quarantine due to a stomach bug (in 3 of 5 wings).


They have allowed me to see her thru her bedroom window.


I'm hoping the quarantine is lifted soon.


I did get her a mother's day gift early - a bird feeder that uses suction cups to attach to windows. I also got her a small flower arrangement.



The hospice organization is awesome - their goal is to pamper her (therapeutic massages; if she wants a fried egg for breakfast, they'll get her a fried egg)

Re: funeral planning

I was so pitiful they have let me in & I have been seeing her daily.

She is declining and most likely won't make it to mother's day.


I tell her every day "thank for ....." & "I love you"

Re: funeral planning

Iím so sorry for your loss, snafu. She had to be comforted by your presence the last few days.

Re: funeral planning

Thanks,


Mom is no longer living a life of quantity over quality.

My DS visited her 2 weekends in a row, before she started declining, and mom got phone calls from 1 of my sisters (twin), all the granddaughters, and great-grandchildren.
