Yesterday we had to have Hospice come in for Mother. Yesterday was not a good day.


Angie said...

Oooh, Dianntha. I'm so sorry this had to be done. It's so hard to admit it's time for Hospice but I hope they will help your mom and be a comfort to your family.
The Hospice folks helped me so much.

Thanks for taking a moment to post.

Extra hugs and prayers to you.

Love, Angie in WA

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I know exactly how you are feeling. Almost a month ago, I had to make that decision for my mother. For days all I could do was cry. My heart is still broken, but if there is any comfort I can give you at this time, they have been wonderful for Mohter. They are so kind to her and have been wonderful to our family. My prayers are going up for your Mom and you and your family. I am not just typing those words and forgetting, seriously You will be remembered in my prayers. Sending big hugs your way.

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. My hope is that Hospice will comfort your Mother and your family as they have thousands of others.

You will me in my thoughts and prayers. Peace be with you.

Praying for you Dianntha. I pray that the Lord will use the hearts and hands of hospice care to bring comfort to your mom and to you.

This can be a positive thing. It will help your Mother be more comfortable and ease your mind, as well. Hospice can be a positive thing. They are kind and concerned and knowledgeable.
I know this can be so difficult. Please know I am praying for your family.

Deborah said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Hopely hospice will be comfort to all of you. They were for me when I had them for my step-dad. .

Linda said...

Dianntha, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know this is such a difficult time for you.

So sorry to hear about Hospice Dianntha. They are so skilled in seeing to all those things that need tending. That in turn will comfort you and your family knowing your dear mom is in caring hands. Will pray for you and your family.

:((( I won't say anything that hasn't been said here. I am sure that your mum is in good hands, and I also know that you need to accept help because you're only human and you can't do everything 24/7. You need your rest. You also need to live for your daughters and husband. And for yourself.
Hopefully, at the Hospice, they will also have medicines that will help your mother deal with her disease, that you cannot use at home.
I can tell, from my own experience, that I have met the most wonderful people there, so caring, both discreet and efficient. Very respectful.
Sending prayers for you and your family, and a huge comforting hug to you, Dear Dianntha.

Frazzled Farm Wife said...

So sorry to hear that...I will be thinking about you and your mom...and praying!

Robin said...

So sorry Dianntha to read this. It is a mixed blessing for hospice to be there. They will allow you to devote your family's time to being with your mom and take some of the care taking efforts off you. You, your mom and family are in my prayers.

Dawn said...

Praying for you, sweet friend. This must be very difficult for everyone involved.
I will lift up your mom in prayer too. Sometimes these decisions need to be made...but, it is never easy.

Dianntha, I am so sorry you are having to go through this difficult time. Please know that I am praying for you and your family.

Debbie said...

Oh Dianntha...I am so sorry. I did the same for my Mum not so very long ago. I shall send prayers and gentle hugs of comfort to you on a warm summer breeze.

I am so sorry Dianntha, but I am so glad you did. These people are the most wonderful people to have around.

I'll be praying for you and your family.

I just happened on your blog and want to send a hug to you. Thank God for Hospice. I know they will be a big help to you. I hope you get to spend some good time with your Mother. Gather memories while you can. There are so many things I wish I had asked my Mother.
