I give you all the thanks and praise in the world. My gramma has been dying for the last 6 weeks and it's been a process. She has had alzheimers for years, but the Monday after Thanksgiving fell several times. Was bleeding in the brain and found a tumor as well when at the hospital. This then began to speed the process along....which in a way was a blessing. As she never wanted to live to have completely lost her mind, which was happening. Anyways, my parents have been living there with her and my grandpa, caring for her. Hospice has been involved since ... now today with the point to where my gramma is at, it will be soon.
So to any of you who work with families through this, my heart goes out to you. It truely takes a special person. I work with mental health children, and that takes a special person as well.....but a hospice nurse or care giver has more of a heart than I do.
