Awake in the night 3


Mumโ€™s condition is deteriorating fast since she went into hospital, she is suffering from bouts of confusion-paranoia and obviously some pain. Her mobility has now gone and we have been told she has approximately four/eight weeks left to live. We are fighting so hard for her to go home which is where she wants to be.

The McMillan nurse has been brilliant and has instructed the hospital staff of what medications will help mum. Unfortunately a doctor and a staff nurse seem to think they know better and it’s causing some issues which we are hopefully going to rectify by requesting to see the matron today.

Life is very difficult at the moment and shows no sign of changing for the foreseeable! I know I need to trust in my faith but it is proving very difficult and all of our family just want this nightmare to end.
