My father is being put on hospice

My father is being put on hospice

He has been in a nursing home for 2 years.

He had a cerebral aneurysm at age 48 in 1990. So he has had a lot of health issues stemmed from that over the years.

My father has really declined in the past 6 months. He is unable to swallow well and he doesn't want to eat. He has lost a lot of weight even with supplementation .

He went from talking , being able to feed himself , shaving, knowing when to go to the bathroom to now needing 100 percent care and a hoyer lift.

Nurse called me today and said the dr was in to see him and he is just not going to get any better. He has suffered enough.

I am meeting with hospice on Tuesday . I am so lost and heartbroken. It could be days or months now.

My brother has been no help so thank god for my husband and kids.

I just pray he can live out the rest of his days in comfort.
