"Mom's condition has worsened, she's not aware of anything around her and we don't think she can see today. She does not acknowledge us or follow any commands. She has started having difficulty in swallowing and will soon be unable to. So, the next heartbreaking decision had to be made. We met with two of her doctors again, and we are all in agreement that it's the appropriate time to discontinue her care and feeding tube in order to honor her wishes. The doctors feel that Mom would have no more than a week.
We met with a social worker to discuss inpatient hospice care, we toured and chose a facility close to us. Mom will be moved tomorrow."
