Kate, don't worry about that at the moment.KateR said:I'm not in much of a position to make any positive contributions to this forum at the moment, but I hope that once this is all over I will be able to come back and offer the same sort of support and advice to others on here going through the same.
Thanks Hazel. I'm just so exhausted but almost scared to go to sleep in case we're woken by a phone call...the nurse has said that in her experience most deaths in this situation seem to happen in the middle of the night or very early morning? We were asked today which funeral home they should contact when he goes which really made it all hit homeSkye said:Thank you for the update, Kate. I don't think your dad can last much longer without fluids. You're doing all the right things.
Stay strong, we're all with you.
Skye said:Kate, when my mum was at that stage, I'd been sitting with her all day, and felt tired and sweaty. I said to the charge nurse that I was going to go home to have a shower and change. He said, 'How bad would you feel if your mum died when you weren't here?' I got the message and stayed. My mum died at 1 am.
If you ask, they may be able to tell you.
Love and prayers,
