life support for my mom what would you do UPDATE NEED ADVICE PLEASE!!
I was adopted but found my biological mom 7 years ago. We talked over the phone from time to time and I went to meet her once. She lived in a nursing home for a long time. She has a lot of health issues like diabetes,schizophrenia,high blood pressure. She had a heart attack years ago and another one a few weeks ago along with a stroke. She hasn't been the same since. in out of the hospital every other week. A few weeks ago she wasn't able to talk but looks around. Now she can't talk, open eyes,respond to touch. She's on life support. A feeding tube as well. She's been on a breathing machine for a year now. Her health is very poor and her doctor doesn't see her making it. I'm the only one on her list of contacts she has no more family or anyone close. I live 15 hours away from her. The doctor wants me to decide if I want to take her off of life support. I'm just not sure or comfortable making that decision. What would you do? I'm so sad I loss my biological mom from birth now I am forever ;(
My mom passed away late Friday night. Now there's a problem when it comes to burial expenses. Due to her bad health years ago I couldn't afford life insurance for her. I can't afford to bury her :(
I would like to get help (if possible) getting her cremated and her remains shipped to me. Then I'll have a memorial service for her. Does anyone know who I can talk to about getting help? She's in NY I'm in SC. The people at the hospital gave me a charity number I called and didn't get an answer so I left messages still haven't heard back. I know they can only keep her body but for so long. I hate for the state to take over her body I don't know what to do :(
