Quote from Suesquatch
She is in the process of dying. Removing the tube feeding will, if she is still digesting any of it, speed the process.
I believe that letting her go is the moral and kind thing to do. But your dad feels, for obvious reasons, guilt about doing that.
Have you contacted anyone from hospice to come and talk with him and the rest of the family?
I hope earle checks into this thread.
dad is drving me and mom nuts
he finally decided to move her to hospice
and near our house
but he is the one that wont let go
and Gram cires out "i want to be with Jesus " why am i here "
it has been so stressfull for us
to make a long story short my dad doesnt have any of his famlies support
and they are lingering like vultures waiting for her to die
and dad hopes she will use up her moneys by keeping her alive long enogh
so he dont have to give a dime to the freeloaders
money is not everything
i think this woman that is 90 deserves to die with dignity
the whole frekking house has grams stuff here its a viritual shrine
and im going nuts from it
trying to grt through lpn school and deal with all this
and living with parents which i had to do in order to afford my schooling
just say a prayer for me
its gonna be a long haul :/
and the min i get that lpn degree
im off to Las vegas !
