Hi. I called hopice this week and they came yesterday. Her Doctors never even mentioned Hospice to me, I called on my own.My Mom is getting so bad so quickly. I cant believe she was walking and driving and taking care of herself a month ago. Her Ca diagnosis was a month ago. I guess because the Breast CA went un-detected for so long,it had years to grow and spread.
She started having periods of confusion today which absolutely broke my heart. I have been taking care of her all by myself since she came home from the hospital weeks ago. She is unable to get out of bed. She told me today that she was not talking to me today because I did not talk to her yesterday. I wanted to cry. I was with her all day yesterday. My poor children are so upset that I do not have the time that I usually have for them. It is tough. They are still very young,9 and 5, to truly understand.
I know that my Mom did not mean what she said to me. It still made me feel bad. I want my Mom back. The way she was. And I know that will never happen. She still managed to make a joke today when she was having a good moment. She is also so depressed.
Thanks for listening. Please say a prayer for us all.
