So I have no idea what to do.... thoughts, ideas, opinions.... TIA for reading!
My mom has a good friend (a much older man) whom she has become over the years his best friend and has really been there for him much more than his own children and family have been. He is sick and has decided to just be done with it all and they have disconnected all machines and he is quitting his dialysis; all of this at the recommendation of the Dr.'s due to quality of life issues if he were to continue them. He LOVES N and has always loved visiting and seeing him and he has been to all of N's birthdays and such and when my mom was babysitting N he would come over at least once per week to see N.
I am struggling with whether or not I should take N to the hospital to see him.. My mom said he is not 'sick looking' so it shouldn't scare him but is N too young to say 'good bye'? I don't want to shelter N but at the same time I just don't know if he is too young for this all or if I can even do this on my own (husband is out of town til Sunday).
I was not particularly fond of the guy personally (just for things I didn't really care for) but he was great to my mom and Noah?
