Great grandma checking into hospice

Discussion in 'Real Life Stories' started by MyNamesAustin, Nov 3, 2014.

  1. Last week, my great grandma fell in the middle of the night and broke her hip. I live with her to help around the house and what not and she's be in the hospital since.

    The doctors said she was doing better last week, but today they found out her condition is worsening and they asked her if she wanted to be put on hospice or stay in the hospital, but if she stays her condition is only going to worsen. The only physical response she could give them is, "I don't know".

    Well it turns out she's going into hospice and I don't even know how to react. I cried my whole way home tonight and I just don't know what to do. You could say we were pretty close. I moved in with her last year and that made us a lot closer, so this is going to be hard

    Part of me wants to just smoke tonight and forget about it until I see her tomorrow. I really don't know what to do. :(

  2. Oh man, blaze a bowl and relax tonight and face the music in the morning, they is no upside to a situation like this.
  3. Be happy you even knew your great grandma yet alone lived to 18+ with her being alive. 
  4. Sorry you are going through this.  How old is she?  If her health starts to deteriorate, be with her as that will sooth her.  Hospice is fantastic at pain relief so you can rest assured she wont be in any pain.  Just be there for her and take one minute at a time.   Breath.  Drive safe, eat well and rest because it sounds like it may be a stressful next couple of weeks for you. 
    Good luck.
  5. Blaze a bowl in her name. Get drunk and move into the hospice with her.
  6. Sorry to hear that man. Losing a family member is never easy. God bless

    She will get excellent care through hospice.  It really gives me hope when I read posts like yours. Most people won't give their older relatives the time of day let alone move in.  I'm sorry you're going through this.  We're all here for you if you need to vent.  I do a lot of that on here. lol
