Well, my husband's mom is back in the hospital. She is 80 years old and in extremely poor and failing health. We spoke with her this morning and then with the doctor this evening. My husband is the Power of Attorney as well as the Health Care Surrogate. She has already been deemed incompetent and he is and has been making all of her medical decisions.
This evening, after dealing with this for well over a year of the "heavy" stuff, hubby and doc decided to take her off of her meds, give her the "regular" food that she has been literally screaming for and let nature take its course. She is a brittle diabetic and they are even going to stop her insulin. She has only 1/4 of 1 lung functioning and that is with full oxygen.
So, now, we wait. ...... I sure hope when it is my time that God takes me quick and painlessly!
The "stress" around here is almost unbearable! Hubby is drowning himself into the T.V. This is the normal way he deals with stress. I, on the other hand, eat....not good!!! Friday and yesterday, were the worst. Friday, while I waited in line at the grocery store, 4 candy bars jumped into my buggy....well, we all know that I just had to eat alllll 4 of them to get them out of my sight!! Boy, do I feel guilty!!
Between the stress and candy bars (and let's throw in PMS), I have just munched myself into fat overload....It was soo bad Friday that my pedometer even jumped off of my waistband and committed suicide!!! It hasn't worked since!! GEEEEZZZZZ..... Maybe, tomorrow I will go and get another one....What I really need is a lock on the refrigerator....
I think that I will go to bed now....it's too dark and rainy/stormy to go for a walk so at least if I am asleep I won't be eating.... Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day....
