My mum was admitted to hospital yesterday with a chest infection and suspected pneumonia. They say there going to reassess my mum today and decide on what they going to do if anything. My mum has only been in a care home since January and has deteriorated rapidly since they stopped my mums aricept they put her back on it when I constantly complained but would only give her 5mg instead of the 10mg might as well as given her nothing for all the good it did and is now in the last stages of this horrendous illness. Now all the so called family are now starting to come out of hiding starting with my so called siblings it just beggars belief. They didn’t want to know when it came to looking after my mum. One of my mums sibling turned up the other week and started blubbering because how my mum was. She has not bothered with my mum for nearly a year and the last time she saw her she must have spent at least an hour with her wow What has she got to be unhappy about it never crossed her mind when my mum was sobbing her hart out when she was finally forced to come to terms with this illness and needed her family around to support her but they just didn’t want to know. The next few days are going to be really hard. I know im just going to get pushed out ive done all the difficult part the caring side the supporting side and helping my mum to have a life side. This year has been really bad cant have got any worse. My mum was forced into a home at that point my mum’s life as she new it ended; I lost my job, I got cancer though through my treatment im in remission upto now and now im properly going to be burying my lovely mum what a Christmas this is going to be… All I want for Christmas is my mum. But as i read other peoples postings it makes me realise there are still a lot of other people out there who are worse off than me and my poor mum and in that it gives me strength because there are always other people worse off than you. It makes me count my blessings though i wish things could have been different..I told my mum that it was upto her now if she wanted to fight on for a little longer or go and be with her loving mum and dad now. I would like my mum to stay just for one last Christmas but that is my mums choice. This illness and other people have taken away all my mums rights my mums dignity but it they will not take away this one in the end this is going to be my mums choice my mums decision.
