… is one that I don’t care to repeat again. Mom had a massive stroke 3 December, my sister and I spent much of the time until she went back to work in the 3rd week after with Mom in palliative care.
After that, Dale came weekends, and at Christmas and New Year’s. I went back to work Friday January 2nd, Scott stayed with Mom. She had begun to swallow New Year’s Eve, and so we were able to feed her pureed foods.
Monday January 5th, both Scott and I were back to work full time. I came back to stay at night with Mom in her room. Tuesday I realized that Mom was making signs that she wanted me to leave. I asked her. She nodded yes. I asked her if she wanted to move out of this palliative care room. She did.
Wednesday they moved her to a semi-private room. I had two nurses verify that Mom really did want to make this move. They felt she did.
