Sorry to hear this. I told my Mom, who was in Hospice, I’d see her the next day. She passed away early am yesterday. She was Mom until the end. Updated will, and prepaid for cremation saw all her Grandkids and Great-grandson. The hospice nurse said Moms “know” when to pass away, when their children aren’t there. This helped us a bit. Not to feel guilty for not being there.
Hug your mom and tell her you love her. She knows at some level.
I’m sorry you and your family are going through this. Peace to all of you.
One gentle suggestion: it’s very hard for for families to accept, but she really doesn’t need food right now. It’s perfectly normal for her to lose interest, and there’s really no need to stress yourselves or her over food. Follow her lead.
I’m sorry you’re going through this @What_Exit I hope that you and your family have had a chance to at least enjoy the last few years of her life so that you’re all at peace when it’s over - that and I hope that she’s comfortable.
Sorry to hear you’re going through this. I experienced it 2 months ago. Mom was declining due to Parkinson’s and the last few weeks went downhill very fast. I traveled to spend some time helping Dad (and just being there) when she got worse. I went to the hospice place one day and she brightened and recognized me – even managing to say my name. That night the hospice nurse called, telling us we should come quickly, and we got there in 15 minutes. But it was too late and she was gone. It’s almost like she got better just enough to say goodbye - then passed.
I thought I was ready. But you can’t be. Not for your Mom.
