I appreciated all of your thoughts and prayers about my aunt, who has made an unexpected comeback- she'll never be well since she has had Alzheimer's a long time, but she is aware and able to open her mouth and eat.
My mom went into the hospital this morning, struggling to breathe, she has been having an ongoing heart attack for three days now, which I didn't hear about until my sister called this morning. Mom is resting comfortably now in the hospital, but although the doctor says her only hope is to have angioplasty, she flatly refuses. We have tried coaxing and logic, nothing is working to persuade her. If she felt it was time to go, if she felt comfortable about leaving us, then it might be some consolation, but she says she is going to recover- despite the doctor's statement otherwise. She is still failing, her lips are blue. The doctor looked at my son and me as though we would override her refusal, but we don't see how we can, she seems lucid, although mistaken.
I don't know what to do. ?
