I haven't posted before now but I am in a turmoil and wondered if anyone else has been in this situation. Mum deteriorated rapidly last week and I have been with her at the NH every day. I had been feeding her puree meals and thickened drinks but she has stopped eating for the last 2 days, she stopped drinking today. When I arrived at the NH today there was a sign to say it was closed due to D&V bug. One of the nurses came out to me and said she couldn't stop me seeing Mum but she advised me not to stay in case I picked it up. My son and his wife are due to have their second baby any day and it would be terrible if I gave the D&V to any of them. The carers and nursing staff have been fantastic, so I know Mum is comfortable and cared for. I have been told it's just a matter of time now, and after being by Mum's side throughout this dreadful journey, I wanted to be with her at the end. The NH has to be clear of sickness for 48 hours before opening, I'm sure Mum won't survive that long. Perhaps I'm being selfish but it's terrible imagining her in her last days without me. Sorry to ramble on but my head is spinning.
