    Mum suffered a right sided stroke yesterday and ended up in hospital. They've subsequently found that she has puonemia,renal failure and she had a heart attack. The doctors discussed a DNAR with me and my family last night :( she's on antibiotics,fluids,NG tube feeds,insulin pump. Her blood sugar went to 29 last night.Shes unresponsive to all family. I'm Just so exhausted and can't even Think about losing mum. :( feeling so sad right now xx

    So sorry for you and your Mum.

    The hospital are clearly working hard to support your Mum and do whatever is best for her. You must feel as if you've been flattened by a steam-roller, it'll be ghastly for you.
