Sparing all the details and events from the past week, my mom and her 4 siblings decided, with Gram’s agreement, to take her off all medication for the c-diff infection, as well as the dialysis. They have set her up with good pain medication that keeps her comfortable, and only have IV fluids to keep her hydrated. She was moved out of the ICU and into the oncology unit 2 days ago. She doesn’t have cancer, but they are better suited for end of life patients; nicely set up, quiet rooms, less interruptions from staff, and just an all around better place to spend her final days. Family continues to stay by her side around the clock. They say that she’s content and comfortable. She’s even allowed to have coffee and coke by way of one of those sponge thingies. 🙂

Please pray for peace and comfort for all of us (family and friends) as we let her go, and for Grams, for safe passage when it’s time.
