Default Mom has taken a turn...

Unable to wean off of vent. Bedsore has stopped healing. Very little muscle left. In lots of pain. May not be too long now. It is up to her what to do next.

So sorry. A tough time for you to watch her suffer. Hopefully, she will soon be free.

so sorry about your mum.

I hope you can help make this end stage as comfortable for her as possible and that the nursing staff have good palliative skills to give her heaps of pain relief and you can just be with her, she will know even with lots of meds.

She is in a excellent specialty hospital from the vent with people that understand neuromuscular. It has been a blessing. She will come home soon.
