So Sister is distressed, and very fearful. She doesn't want to leave her family, because she knows how truly desperately they need her. I personally think the hospice nurse was an insensitive lout, but Herself did not say that (just my miserable impression).

    Herself says it's achingly sad to look at Sister. She says she has no earthly idea how someone that thin can still be with us. :(
    WHAT?????????????? Really? OMG! Dumbfounded. That has to be the last thing she needed to hear :( A big thumbs down.

    When my brother in law was incredibly close to passing the nurse told my sister to tell him it was ok, he could leave However, to say it directly to Sister herself is not good - that must have been horrible for her to here as shes so scared

    Sister's daughter (and Herself as well) have spoken gently with her several times, assuring her that they will take care of Sister's husband (a completely different illness story) and the 7 year old granddaughter. They have told her how they will care for them, and given her as much information as they possibly can.

    Sister knows, as much as anyone can know, that those she leaves behind will be cared for. The hospice nurse knew all that, so there was no need what so ever for her to try and interfere in that type of conversation. Sister was so upset and frightened, she refused to have her bath, or any other hands on care. It's clear to Herself, that Sister does not want anyone from that hospice touching her. It's very late in the illness, but perhaps another hospice needs to be brought in. I don't know how that works, for certain though. Probably have something to do with the stinking health insurance. :(

    Never let anyone put down your health care in the UK or any other country. As far as I'm concerned, for a so called "super power" the USA's health care system is nearly criminal.

    That's a deplorable thing for the nurse to have said.

    I wish you all peace and comfort and know that I, along with many others on here are thinking of you with nothing but support.

    Oh dear. This is so sad. Even though I don't know Herself or Sister I've felt so cross with that hospice today. I sat with my dear Mother through her last 2 days so I know how it feels. Is there any chance that Sister could just go home, maybe with nursing care? xx
