Mums dying

Post by Highspeed » Fri Aug 26, 2016 10:12 am

My mum had a fall a while back, made a real mess of herself.

She got sent to a rehab unit eventually, but her condition worsened on Sunday night and she's in a real bad way, it's just a matter of time now.
If you have ever seen anyone die, you'll know that " look " they get. She's got that.

Met with the consultant in charge of her case yesterday and I OK'd a DNR for her.

I'm sure a few prayers might help her out of this world and into the next. I don't have one in me though.

I'm sorry

Prayers sent. It's hard watching loved ones die. Wish we could do more for you.

Condolences and prayers sent.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

May she rest in peace, HS, and may you find some for yourself, too.
