Good morning, friends. I received a message from my husband that my mother-in-law is in very bad condition. (They both by the way are in Las Vegas, USA). His message started like this:
"There's been problems with mom. Almost lost her yesterday. I was with her. I didn't tell you because you couldn't handle it. Somehow, I pulled her out of what seemed like a coma...."
and long pause....
and then followed by this:
"She used too much oxygen. With COPD she can't exhale as much as she was taking in. So basically it's like she overdosed on oxygen. Put her in a deep sleep, one that seemed irreversible. The hospice nurse checked her eyes for brain function, no response."
(she has been in and out of the hospital for years)
So I asked again what really happened. He goes:
"No more hospitals this time, She is in Hospice Care. She is a DNR. She's still at the house but if anything happens, she doesn't go to the hospital. They just make her comfortable so that she passes comfortably peacefully."
My tears just started to fall. I couldn't speak. I was literally in a shocking mode.
and then my husband goes:
"I changed that. I got in her head. It happened a couple of days ago she went into a coma. I was with her trying to get her to respond or anything it's like she went into a deep sleep that she wouldn't wake up from and I tried to get her to respond and everything for hours my dad couldn't get her to respond at all but I was having some luck getting response from her. So I continue trying and continue trying and continue trying I wouldn't give up and I was actually successful I was able to pull her out of the coma."
The message still did not sink in into my head.
and another message followed and he goes:
"Yesterday, I was working and dad was sleeping. Mom decided to take her oxygen off. She wasn't getting any oxygen other than what she could breathe through her mouth from the regular air with her COPD lungs - Which is a long way from how much oxygen she is required to have. Now, mom is in the full state of Dementia - Hallucination type behavior. There's no way to make sure her oxygen stays on. She wouldn't even understand what it is, and that's going to make it worse and worse to where she's got complete and total brain damage. It's weird, she will talk normally with you, and then she closes her eyes and talks in a dream state. She has no idea she's doing it."
The message ended right there because mom was talking something about my husband. I feel really bad for her and I am helpless I couldn't give her a hug or something and I am here, 7000 miles apart.
My mother-in-law is one of the sweetest person I have ever known. I deeply love her and everyone loves her. She's very thoughtful, she got humor and she's a real thinker. We could discourse for hours on any topic on the planet and I would never get tired of listening. She is also very generous and the epitome of grace and kindness. Not to exaggerate, but she is an example of one of the best humans on Earth.
A short story of the second photo above:
Iconic flashback photo of my mom-in-law and my husband. Somewhere, they have a photo just like this from when my mom was 20 and hubby was around 4 years old. She thought she would never see my hubby or the beach again. Here in the photo, she got both just like when my hubby was little.
In the photo above, my mom-in-law and my hubby are teasing each other like kids.
Oftentimes, we keep discussing the future and the present. We live with feelings of hatred and consistently deviated to things that weren't how we would have preferred them to be. I have been hearing relatives and friends and people I know who have lost their friends and family in a negligible part of seconds out of no certainties.
Let's live life in the manner in which we need, and do all that makes us and our friends and family happy.
Whatever accomplishment, abundance and wealth, well-being and health, love of our lives we have and appreciated, it will eventually go. Our lives aren't simply delicate, sacred, and fragile. It's additionally fleeting.
Life gets confounded completely all alone. It needn't bother with our assistance. It is dependent upon us to take minutes to simply be. Get directly with yourself today. Disregard fulfilling the world, lose the inclination to change what your identity is to be more satisfactory to the family, companions, strangers with irrelevant sentiments.
Who you are, right now, is perfect. The solitary changes you ought to make or arranging, are ones that you need. Changes that bring you harmony, carry you nearer to where you need to be.
We won't ever do anything 100% perfect. It's inconceivable. The sooner we understand that the good we will be.
In the event that your loved ones don't acknowledge you - I'm here. I am your family. Have a magnificent weekend, my amazing friends.
