When the end is near, an update

Posted Monday, October 10, 2011, at 7:20 PM

At the moment, I am most likely the angriest  person on this blog site. Some person at the assisted living facility she is living in decided to ignore the fact that she is a hospice patient. They called the paramedics who then decided to transport her despite being told that she is a hospice patient. I don't know if they did it out of stupidity, or that they knew better than her, myself and the hospice nurse. If it wasn't due to stupidity, JUST WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE!!!! THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO OVERRIDE HER WISHES AS TO WHEN AND WHERE SHE WANTS TO DIE!!!! IF THIS WAS DONE OUT OF SOME RELIGIOUS DOGMA, I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL SUE EVERYONE INVOLVED INTO NEXT YEAR. EVERY LIVING HUMAN BEING HAS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHEN AND WHERE THEY WISH TO DIE!!!!

Her time is very near now, I know this. I accept this. Yes, there  will be some tears, but the pain will be over, and she will have had the right to choose death with dignity. This an example of why I can't stand the so called religious conservatives. Those who feel they have the moral authority to override a persons wishes. If this offends some of you, so be it! You will get no apology from me!

Roy did the assisted living Facility have your Moms Living Will? What was their reason for moving her? I'm sorry you are in such heart break right now... ((HUGS))

Yes they did. I will find out tomorrow their reason for calling 911. Thanks for the hugs.

I am sending hugs your way also. Sometimes messages don't get conveyed to the right people. I think that you are pretty tired right now and need some peace of your own.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
