OSOTT, I am so sorry for what you and your mother have been through. There was NO excuse for your mother's treatment. ( or anyones for that matter ) That was soooo barbaric. I am glad you got a chance to witness what was happening, as painful as it was. It caused you to remove her from that "treatment", which was basically to just let her die. I feel so bad for your mother..... how frightened and so alone she must have felt. I really feel for those residents that don't have family that don't or can't visit... much less intervene and advocate for their family members. Things might have been so different for your mom and others if this ugly virus wasn't here. I pray for you and you mother. Caregiving can be a biotch Just putting the truth out there. As much as we love them, it's okay not to like the situation that we are in. I love my mother with all my heart... but I admit, sometimes my mind wonders back to the time when my life was my normal. When I worked, had my house just to me and hubs. When my every waking hour wasn't taking care of mom and her needs. But...mom is here, she needs care - it is what it is. It's my new "normal". Such às this Coronavirus is what it is. It is a harsh reality that it is going to spread. Millions will be infected. ( We are all already affected.... look at how we are living now ) If we don't get needed equipment and medications.... there will be some harsh decisions to be made. It's a sad, sad fact that the weak and infirmed will be the last to get treatment. I don't think it's a conspiracy... it's just fact. It's scary. But, I am refusing to live my life ( or what may be left of it ) in fear. I will do whatever I can to protect myself and mine. But whatever is going to happen, is going to happen. Our days of life were preordained before our birth. If you believe in Our Heavenly Father, that's the way it has to be. Please everyone... be safe. Hunker in place... leave only when you need too. If you have it... wear it. Love to all. Peace Out..... Angelflutter
Beautifully said, Angelflutter. I do believe in God, Christ and the Holy Spirit and I believe that when our time comes and God calls us home, it was the exact and perfect time. NOT OUR TIME but our Lords. I don't believe God makes mistakes when it comes to this. There is no accident. However, I am very worried about how this virus will change our healthcare for ALL Americans young and old. I could not live with myself if I did not give my very best care to my mother to the best of my ability. Hospice is coming in a bit and it's so hard but I know her care will be even better. It does mean that there will be no more trips to the hospital (why? I just witnessed how they are not giving treatment) and that even her IV antibiotics will not be given anymore. Her body is worn out. I've been sleeping beside her and holding her. She mumbles a lot, then clearly, then back to a language I don't know. I know she is in the process. I know last week took weeks off of her life - but then again, God is in control. She will pass when God decides - and that IS comforting because I know God doesn't make mistakes. Praise Be to God.

This time in my life, since my husband died, until now, has been very sad. I pray that I can recover from the sadness and somehow move forward and start over. START OVER....omg. How? Where? Who am I? My identity is "who knows?" Thank you and everyone for prayers for us. It's a delicate, intimate, emotional time for mom and I . I dread the hospice nurse coming and asking the hard questions. I dread today but I will be glad once the nurse leaves and mom is registered.

Thank you all for listening.
OSOTT,
My thoughts & prayers are with you & your mom. I KNOW how difficult it is watching her fade. Yes, God knows when our time is gone. When my mom passed (19 yrs after my dad) I was very depressed & felt like an orphan. It's not anything we get over, we just learn to cope. God will help.🙏

Please know you have no regrets. You are doing the very best you can & that's all any one can do. She's so blessed to have you there by her side. Stay strong as long as she needs you. God will help.🙏

Love you OSOTT 💞

Angels are comforting and loving beings,
and they will always come in a way that makes us feel comforted
and supported. Open yourself up to a miracle. Not all prayers
need to be formalized for angels to help. Sometimes an intention
for help is all we need for the angels to bring in their love and light.
Angles never want to see us suffer, and so, often, when we are in
a place of desperation and need, they will bring an answer in any
way that they see fit.
Love and prayers, honey

One only has to look at Canada and Venezuela as areas of the world where, "socialized" medicine does not work. Ask a Canadian or a person living in the UK what they think of their health care, and how long it takes to get an appointment. I never want to live in a country where medical decisions are based on the age or condition of the person. I pray we find a vaccine for this virus.

So beautiful, honey. I will stop and be still....listen and pay attention. You are so right - I've not stopped and I need to breathe. Your post was a blessing and I will await the Angels. <3

@OtherSideOfTheTracks I am so sorry for what you and your mom have been put thru this past week, reading about it brought tears to my eyes. There is no excuse for what the so called medical people put your mother through, just because there is this virus to deal with they should not lose their decency and compassion for people, we are not just expendable. I will pray to God to give you strength and pray for your mom. Doctors are not God and they should not be playing God picking and choosing who they decided should have a chance. My grandfather had to have surgery one time and the doctors were so sure that he would not survive that they did not sew him up properly, my grandmother and the family prayed and prayed that he would pull thru and he did, the doctors ended up having to bring him back into the operating room a few day later to sew him up correctly when they saw he was going to make it. They had closed him up but the way they do if someone dies on the operating table not the regular way.

Yes, that puts me in mind of carrying my Grandmother into the emergency room as she was having a heart attack and the Doctor, once he found out her age, wanted to know what I wanted him to do. I wanted him to treat her! I can't tell you how many times he suggested we just let her slip away or how many times he asked if I really wanted him to treat her, meanwhile precious time is slipping away. Even though she survived, and lived another 4 years, she probably would have lived another 8 if so much time was not lost and so much damage done to her heart by debating whether she was worth saving.

"They" sure know a lot about a virus that is new. How long we would be contagious, that you can only get it once. It's evident to me that this isn't what they say.
It's easy to control people if they wipe out the elderly ( which have more sense than most young people) and men over 50. What we are subjected to now will become regular protocol.. . Big Brother is getting what He wants because we are all falling in line like good little soldiers who aren't allowed to ask questions.
Ain't that the truth.

I'm not saying I know for sure. But when this started, I told my sister and parents that this was a way of getting "rid of" the older generation, and the infirm.

That it reminds me of N@zi, Germany AND the way the "H!tler Youth" acted towards the elderly and infirm in N@zi, Germany.
And have you noticed that the govt hasn’t said one
word about releasing the people from those cruise
ships that they took away to be put in mandatory
quarantine on ‘military bases’? Not one word about them. Plus what about all those poor people who came over the border and were put in cages? Where are they?
If they’re still around I’d imagine they’d all be sick
with covid-19

This is what I heard on the radio last night....
A whole bunch of Chinese migrated to Italy for jobs
and Italy loved it and it was a huge boost to their
economy. Italy welcomed the Chinese, many migrated
legally, though many did not. Chinese took over
Northern Italy. Yes, very many deaths reported in Italy -
with no real reports on whether the Native Italians or
the Chinese are the majority of the victims.

I had never known that was happening in Italy.
