Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35
Mom stopped eating several days ago. The hospice folks tell us that her body cannot handle food anymore and although we can provide some liquid nutrition through her G-tube there maybe a point when this could cause more harm than good. This was hard to reconcile in my mind, but when she woke up with stomach pain this morning after a feeding last night, I got what they are saying. Mom is now living solely on the Bread of Life.
She is resting as comfortably as she can right now. She is dealing with some pain and is sleeping more throughout the day. Steve is coming for a visit in the next week. We have no idea how much time mom has, but I am thankful for every day we have together.
Thank you to everyone, for the visits, food, flowers and visits, calls, emails, posts on this site, and for your continued thoughts and prayers. From near and far you have provided much support and comfort.
