Time To Say Goodbye?

My alzheimer-stricken FIL has been suffering from pneumonia for weeks and the docs have tried different types of antibiotics, but they didn't really help much. They tried the strongest type of antibiotics, but to no avail. His condition has been stable so far, but it seems that they've prepped MIL to say goodbye to him. He was supposed to be brought back to the main old people's home yesterday, but the doc has said that it would be unnecessary and that he'd take care of him in the hospital until his last breath. In the beginning of treatment he was still eating well, but gradually reacting less and less. Today I asked MIL about his condition and it seems that he hasn't been eating well anymore. So it seems that it's only a matter of time...

At least I'm glad that MIL has had time to let go, but I pray that she's given peace of mind and no regrets. After all, she's done all she can to be with him and to take care of him with so much love...


  1. Oh Amel, that's really sad news. Lots of love to you all, especially your MIL.

    1. THANKS for your kind words, Katriina. It seems that he's stable though dunno how much better he can be, so we shall see about that.

  2. I'm sad to read this. I hope too your MIL has peace of mind and your FIL is comfortable.
