I was looking for some words of advice. My Mom is a stroke victim (8 years this October) in the past year she has increasing declined in what she can and can not do...(she is 75 and has multiple health problems)She is now in the hospital for unexplained fluid retention in her extremities with some kidney funtion flucuation.
Here's my problem....she has lost all desire to live....she will not eat, she is extremely weak..her kidneys functions are improving and her body is just not ready to quit yet....but she is...
Any words of wisdom to help her want to remain with us would be helpful
Please don't misunderstand it is not that we don't understand her wishes....but it is diffucult to watch.......
