Hi and THANKS TO ALL OF YOU SO MUCH!!
I guess I forgot why I love this site so much.
You guys are the BEST!!
I posted last night and went to bed with 6 posts.
I checked tonight and its over 70!!
You all are so compassionate and it really DOES help to read these!
I am going to ask the Hospice nurse tomorrow if they can get us a more private room with her thanks to the info provided.
She is in a shared room with LaDonna, who has been wonderful to her and with us but the room is small and I have 5 sisters and 1 brother + all our extended families. We asked earlier for a room to make this easier for us to stay with her and so there aren't 8 people at a time in this little room trying to be there with her. We were told there is a waiting area for family but she would stay in her room and we could come and go. That is not acceptable so we all just stayed there and flowed into the hallway. It is at the end where the exit door is and the buzzer goes off as everyone goes in and outside.
She is still with us tonight.
Her kidneys are completely shut down, I think I already told that in my first post.
Her heart is still strong and keeping her alive. Still no nutrition and she is getting Roxicodone under the tongue. Only about every 4-5 hours. She is zonked out from it. I don't know if that is good or bad, but as long as she is resting comfortably. It's only a matter of time. I went today from about 1pm-9:30pm and my 2 grown children are up there now with her to relieve the other family members staying the night. Tomorrow is my night to stay overnight if she is still fighting to stay alive as she seems to be.
I want you all to know how much this touches me and I am doing ok at this point...........
