Re: [MOL] Nancy P./about HospiceBack to Nancy P



Title: Monday
Hi Lil,
I don't get much time to get on the PC right now.
Don is slipping and Mother seems to have hit another Plato.
Don has had a couple rough days, had to call Hospice tonight.
Read the post I wrote about more on Hospice.
Thanks for asking, you are a sharp Lady.
Love you,
Nanc ():-)

Hi Lil,
It is free to all, if you do have money to spare, you are welcome to donate to
Hospice.  Many do here at the funeral homes during there loved ones viewing,
or they put out envelopes by family requests, at the time of the funeral.
All the Doctor has to say is that the patient is terminal and has less then 6 months
to live, if they go past the 6 months, Hospice reviews the case and can choose to
leave their services in the home.
My Mother was with them for a year, they told us that they have had patients for
3 years or even more.
You really shouldn't wait until near the end.  They are so supportive to the whole
family not just the patient.
If I can help further, just ask.
Love you,
Nanc ():-)

Yes, and you did a great job.  Does one have to be in a certain income bracket for Hospice?  I understand that some must pay for this service is that true?  Appreciate the information.
 
Now, tell me how is Don and your mother?  Last but never least how are you holding up?  You have been quiet and I have been concerned.  Now you don't want to go giving me wrinkles after I just had them ironed out!!!!  Your friend, lillian

 Hi Molers.  The oncologist has taken my Mom off of chemo for good.  At first, I thought it was only going to be a month but now he is saying that it is for good.  Mom is sleeping about 18-20 hours a day now.  I'm not sure when to take off work?  Could this go on for months?  She now weighs 135 but just a couple weeks ago it was 142.  My sister thinks that she will go within a month but I don't know.  At what point do I call hospice?  I go home every day to fix her lunch and then she sleeps until I get home at night.  She is able to walk to the bathroom so do I even need hospice?  What does hospice do except administer medicine, give baths, serve meals?  Does anyone have any experience in this?  I feel sort of numb about all of this.  I just want to make sure I do all of the stuff that I am supposed to do. 

Regards,
Dusti
