My mum has gone downhill fast following a bad virus recently which really set her back. She has been doubly incontinent for a while and we have arranged full at home care and a profiling bed and air mattress as she is now totally bedbound and sleeps all the time except for personal care, and needs feeding with small mouthfuls of soft food and sips of drinks. Apart from my SIL and me no family will visit even though she can no longer recognise them or be nasty and spiteful to them as she has been all their lives. I am arranging everything to make her comfortable and safe. Her GP says her heart is strong, but secretly I wish she would slip away peacefully in her sleep as her quality of life is nonexistent, and she could be in this awful limbo state for months or, God forbid, years.
