I’ve been missing for the past many months. My Mom fell last spring, breaking her femur and nearly dying after lying on the floor for three days until her hospice nurse came to check in and found her. She had a hospice nurse because she was dying of breast cancer. It was a scary, weird time for our family. She passed away in early June.
If you have ever been close to someone dying of cancer you know how horrible it is. Hospice is definitely a help, but we need more. Terminal patients need to be relived of the suffering at their choice and at their time. Please think about how you would like your last weeks, days, hours to be. How would you like final hours of your loved ones to be?
