I am here with my Mom helping her as she is now going through a hard time. This past weekend my grandma, Mom's Mom went into the hospital. She was running a fever and she has a UTI...I must tell you that she has had Lewy Body Dementia, it has progressed very fast and she is going down hill...when anyone tries to move her and does anything for her she cries out, she no longer recognizes Mom or anyone, blank look.
So Mom and I were with her yesterday a case worker came in to talk to Mom and she decided we need to have a hospice nurse come in and talk to Mom. Today Mom and her 2 daughters went to the hospital to visit with Grandma and meet with the nurse.
All decided it was best to have Grandma go to the hospice home, she will be kept comfortable, no measures will be made to keep her alive, she has the DNR. She still isn't eating and only drinks little sips. Mom isn't sure if she will pull through or if it will be a matter of time.
I came to Mom to tell her Mom I am with your Mom I am laying with her and if it is her time I will be there with her Mom & Dad to take her to heaven.
This is very hard on my Mom, they always did things together, but Mom knows this is best because it is taking it's toll on Mom.
We just wanted you all to know because you have always been here for all of us and know Mom will need you all again...please pray for my Mom and my grandma during this hard time that my Mom is having to face again...letting a love one go...
Mom may not be here much, but like I told her this is a good place to come even if for a short time.
Now I really must go give my Mom angel hugs and go be with my Grandma while Mom can't be there...

These are difficult times indeed. Hospice measure are wonderfur and in meowmy's experience all of the workers do so much loving care for their charges. Time and time again, she sees these life stories playing out before her, and the most peaceful ones are those with the hospice girls right there, they keep constant vigil when necessary.
Meowmy works in a nursing facility, and we work side by side with hospice when necessary.
I think you have made a loving decision, and though it never easy to watch life ebb away, take comfort in all the beautiful memeories you have had in times gone by. May the Lord of all comfort sustain you and your family at this time.
Meowmy and us, too, will send lots of purrs and pawyers on your behalf.
QT, you are doing a marvelous job, watching and loving your Grandma. She will know you as soon as she sees you...

My grammie got real sick and was in the hospital for a very long time. Finally she went to hospice. Mama said it was so nice. The room was very large with lots of privacy, and she and grampster could stay with grammie as much as they wanted. It was the most peaceful place. Grammie was only there for a week before she crossed the bridge, but the people who work at hospice are very special. Has your mom ever heard of a booklet called "Gone from My Sight?" It only takes a short time to read, but it contains some lovely thoughts. It is recommended by many hospice counselors. I think it would give your mom some peace.

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. Mom understands on what your mom is going through right now. Mom went through the same thing with my grandpa. Both my grandparents had dementia.
My grandma passed away in October of 2011. She went into cardiac arrest. My grandpa passed away January 16 of this year...due to the fact that he lost the will to live. He stop eating and drinking. He wanted to be with my grandma. He was on Hospice. We are sending your mom lots of love and prayers.
Concats for being a DDP.
Dearest QT Angel Dreamgirl,
We love you so much & will be praying for you at this delicate time.
When we are young children or even young adults we never think of Dementia at all much.
Then as it approaches, we have to do what's right for them giving them peace, happiness & making sure they are well cared for with special people there to help!
QT, your Mommy is doing exactly what's best for your Grandma.
Hospice is the right choice & will help make the transition a litta easier for all!
We know this is very difficult to deal with, as we too had to go through it with Kally Kat's Grammy & Grampy.
We will say our prayers before bedtime Kally Kat & Mommy tew!
