I have just been through the identical situation.My thoughts and prayers are with you.Mum deteriorated a lot over the past week, and is now not drinking or eating. If I try to offer her something, she just pushes it away. She spends most time in bed now and can only just about walk. While the nurses who came out today didn't/wouldn't confirm EoL, mum is not going to survive much longer like this.
It's so difficult to process, as it's happened really quickly. I read about sometimes the PWD rallies, but I'm not hopeful.
Watching my mum try to speak is just so devastating.
The nurses did talk about mum going to the respite centre for two weeks to check her over but... I declined, as I wanted mum to be at home in her own bed where she's comfortable. I think it was the right decision... at least I hope so.
I'm just struck by how fast this has happened - as it has to many who have posted in the EoL section. It's literally unbelievable
I am so sorry for your loss. Yes, your mom is at peace now. I recently lost my mom, too, and she went very fast, too.Well that took a little longer than I expected, but mum has gone now
Very peaceful though; she drifted in and out of consciousness, but pulled my face towards her body and hugged me in her final hours so I think/hope she still recognised me at the end. At least she's at peace now
