He is now on Hospice care at the nursing home. A few weeks back he fell out of his wheelchair and fell face first onto the floor. He got 8 stitches in the middle of his forehead. I guess housekeeping found him so we don't know how long he laid there... they did a CAT scan and no brain bleed but ever since he's been confused and he developed a twitch in his hands and his legs. He's now on oxygen and he hasn't been eating much and his kidneys are shutting down too. We saw him today and he barely could keep his eyes open. He has wanted to die for a long time. He's not living this way and he just wants out... so sad. But I understand how he feels. I think he will be getting his wish soon. WE went to see him this morning and the Hospice nurses were with him.. I thought it was nice that they both seemed to take time with him and one young nurse even kissed him on the forehead. I asked the nurse how he was today and they said he was pretty confused. He didn't talk so after a while we just left. Please pray that God will take him soon. We know it's for the best because he's not going to get any better and he hates laying there like he is..
I went yesterday to my mom's and she was very weak but I gave her a bath anyway. Cleaned house and now my back is hurting today too ! Mom is miserable too. Barely talks anymore. So sad to see your parents end up this way.. I"m not trying to be a downer but that is our life right now... So Beth, I understand totally what you have been going through.. I'm just asking for God's will with both Tom and I's parents right now.
