It's BadMy mother has been going downhill -- rapidly -- since she began receiving "comfort" care a little under a month ago.
It has been unbelievably hard for me to see her this way. Most days, I do not want to visit her. The cancer is obviously in her brain now. Sometimes, she speaks like a six-year-old. Sometimes she calls out for her mommy.
And there are other things too awful to mention.
We finally found a good hospice house that will take her in, and I'm supposed to meet with them next Tuesday, but I feel in my bones she won't be leaving the hospital.
You know, I've witnessed loved ones go through the dying process before, but I've never, ever seen the agony my mother is going through.
I thought that was the stuff of fiction.
I swear to god, never saw anything like it...
