Re: Mom re-broke her other hip and is now on Hospice

One of the hardest parts of being a caregiver is the horrible responsibility of fighting for our loved ones when it's time for them to be released from their suffering. Hopefully hospice will be able to help you and your brother as well as your Mom during the days to come.

It's clear that you're making decisions out of love for your Mom. IMO, the hospital should be making her comfortable at this point (not putting her through more painful procedures that she isn't able to understand to extend life at all costs). You have the blessing of knowing your Mom's wishes, which may also help you get through the next two weeks.

Hugs.
