Oh Ingrid...hugs and prayers for all of you. Imagine it is comforting to you and your sister that your mother is herself and at peace with this current journey through life.

Thank you all very much. You are one group of special people. My sister and me will do anything to make sure my mother is as comfortable as can be. My dad spend his last 2 days in a hospice. We were very impressed how nice and caring everybody there was. Our biggest regret was that he couldn’t enjoy it a bit more than just 2 days.

Well, that's sad news, Ingrid. Hospice is fantastic. They will help take care of any pain. It was nice that her old self came through.

Oh my goodness, Ingrid! I am just now reading this. My heart goes out to you, your sister and your mom. Hospice is the best gift you can give her at this time. The hospice workers are angels with a calling to help not only your mom, but you and your sister, as you walk through this last stage of her life here on earth. My prayers are with all of you. My you all be surrounded by His love, peace and comfort at this time. Sounds like your mother is ready to be with your dad again, as she is acting more like herself than she has in years. Sending hugs to all of you! Lots of love.
