Remember my mom in prayers. Hospice care is euthanasia.

Post by Maria »

Dear Members of the Forum,

Please, in your charity, remember my mother, Martha.

Mom died very early this morning, December 7, 2018, shortly after 1 AM. We were expecting this as she had been in hospice care for the past two weeks as she was no longer able to walk, eat, or drink, and was in great pain due to muscular contractions. She was 97 years old.

If you could read the psalms for her, this would be greatly appreciated.

Just after she died, within 30 minutes, mom briefly appeared to her grandson just before my sister received a call from hospice.

No doubt, she was seeking prayers.

In Christ,
Maria
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.

Oh so sorry to hear that, Maria.
Well, at least you had many of the 97 years with her : quite a long time ! Remarkable that she lived so long, nearly 100 !

Nice picture of [lavender ?] which is consoling to see for us readers.

Those are alpine flowers, lupus, which are members of the legume family (beans).

Oh, OK. Well, how are you feeling now ? You said it WAS expected, so probably it wasn't a big shock, but still, it's a major event to undergo.

PS - Muscular contractions due to -- what ?

Obama's hospice program is very evil -- not good at all.

Once in hospice, patients are forbidden to use any supplements of their choice whatsoever, and medicines are withdrawn. Mom was taking magnesium before going into hospice, so when that supplement was withdrawn, as planned, she developed serious leg, arm, and foot cramps. For that pain, she was first given vicoden, to which she is allergic. Vicoden, an opiod, proved ineffective, so she was given the standard of death care, morphine, even though she was also allergic to morphine. Basically, increased doses of morphine put her into a coma and then death quickly followed since morphine weakens the heart. She was in so much pain due to magnesium deficiency that she was encouraged not to eat, drink, or swallow, which only increased her pain.

It was planned euthanasia, and there was nothing our family could do.

This is federal birth-to-death socialism, a fruit of the so-called death panels, and it is ugly, painful, and immoral.

Lord have mercy on these state murderers.

Lord have mercy on my mom.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.
