fired at deathbed
My Mom had copd for about 10yrs. Recently in the last stages she broke her hip and had to stay in the hospital. While there she picked up an infection , her copd got worse and eventually placed on palliative care.
I was never her favorite son but due to the death of my older brother and relocation of my youinger brother I in effect became her only son. She was at the hospital for three months and I visited her almost daily. She was never the most loving person but at the hospital she was always very angry, dejected and scared. She continually complained and I did what I could to help her but was obviously limited.
She died the same day she was put on palliative care. On that day the Dr. met with my Father and I and told us she only had several hours left. We then went to meet with my Mom. As I approached her bedside she was semi-conscience and asked if I was my younger brother. When I told her no, it's me Mom she got infuriated sat up stuck out her hand and shouted "leave". I did leave her bedside though not her room and she died a few hours later.
I am at loss to express how I feel but can anyone help.The Dr. said she was suffering from hpoxia due to the advanced copd and hypoxia can cause anger but still...
