Mom had a comfortable day today, but tonight, we can see that her body is starting to shut down. Sometimes it’s difficult to watch and hear, but we’re working with her nurses to make her as comfortable as possible. She’s resting comfortably at the moment.
We’re adding Zofran into the mix to help keep her stomach settled.
At 6 am, I discovered that Mom’s rosary, scapular and four medals that have been pinned to her gown were missing. Yesterday afternoon, they changed her gown and inadvertently forgot to move the medals to her new gown. The hospital has contacted the laundry service to retrieve them. Hopefully they will find them soon. They are of tremendous sentimental value to our family, especially one medal in particular, a St. John Neumann medal that contains a relic.
One of the nurses, Vicky, even took her personal scapular off her neck and gave it to Mom. That was so touching for her to do that. She even called in yesterday, on her day off to check to see how Mom was doing. She was working today and stopped in several times to see us, even though she wasn’t Mom’s nurse today. Vicky, thank you for being such a caring nurse and a wonderful human being. You are an amazing person.
