The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
Can mom stay in her current facility while on IV ? answer "yes".
Thanks to all of you for your helpful replies.
It is very hard to determine if she is suffering or not as she is not speaking.
Must be so difficult
Hope you can rest In the coming days
Mama is doing better am thinking she suffered a TAI stroke but no one really knows. However, she is eating by spoon feeding.
I am sorry for what you're going through. The body can sustain itself for several weeks on fluids alone, hence why many people who choose DNR ask for no liquids other than by mouth. It does hasten death, to keep someone so ill on IV's but if that is her choice, so be it.
Don't even try to wrap your brain around a kidney transplant for someone so elderly and in such poor shape. It simply wouldn't be done, even with a willing donor. Your mom could not handle what that entails.
I wish you strength through this trial.
