just picturing this makes we want to cry man. I can't even imagine how hard this is.
the hardest part was walking into the alzheimer's unit day room and seeing mom in a wheel chair, holding a baby doll in each arm, chin on her chest, asleep. it gave me a stomach ache.
When her mom was 85, she was in the hospital where mom was a nurse. Mom marked mamaw's file "dnr" and "no code," not because she didn't want the burden, but because she did not want her mother to suffer through a code blue. that's compassion, imho.
