My sister is nearing the end of her fight. We had a hospital bed moved into my mothers living room last Friday and she has been in it since then. Hard day yesterday I questioned hospice if we should even try to feed her. The poor girl has been vomiting even with small amounts of water. Hospice said to quit feeding her and giving water, just to moisten her mouth.
That is so hard to do, but the vomiting is making her miserable. I think I'm at peace with this, as I sat talking to her she gave me the sweetest smiles as I told her everything will be ok. She is heavily medicated which is ok, her biggest fear was the pain.
I pray the Lord takes her quickly and ends her suffering.
