So, things have been emotionally rough over here.  Old86 has been declining recently, they're now delusional more that 80% of the time, seeing their parents, and using "journeying language".  Sasha and Diamond are insisting on keeping Old86 company almost all the time. Any time they drift off to sleep, I'm in there every five minutes watching for breathing....

Hold Old86 close and let them know they are loved and that when the veil lifts it is ok to step thru.
I will hold you and your husband in my heart as I send strength and comfort to you

Maybe a baby monitor? Help you have a bit more peace. It's really wonderful that you are able to do this for them.

Pickles was very suspicious of me, and hid under the bed.  The last day I was watching him, he let me pet him briefly, and I guess I'll call that a win.  This picture really doesn't do justice to his floofy chonkitude, and yes, he is on a diet.

Ty is at least half Siamese according to his meow and behavior.  I also think he was the one who pooped on the floor.  I think that may have been because he likes people, and I was only there for about 45 minutes each day.  However, his humans are back now, so he should be happier now that he has people to meow at.

I have Monday off, hooray for a long weekend!

I forgot if I asked this, but have you talked to a hospice provider to see what they can do to support you remotely? I know you said that FIL doesn't want strangers (i.e., nurses) coming into the house, but maybe there's a way they could write prescriptions for anti-anxiety meds or something to make the time they have left a little more comfortable?

Crotch Puppy (the Goober Pea) says hi.

Otera, I know where you're coming from.  Been doing the night shift off and on with my dad over at their house in the last week or so.  He has advanced Parkinson's and he's been hallucinating more lately.  Trying to get out of the house following imaginary people, etc.

Was over there yesterday at lunch with mom and dad, and both were on their own plane of reality.  Mom has vascular dementia and has been getting worse as well.   I held the pain in till last night, was watching that Disney flick about Dia de Los muertos last night and I lost it and bawled my eyes out like a baby.  I'm losing them.......

Glad you were able to let some of your grief out. It might be time to see about more intensive care for them, day and night? Also, it might be worth having Dad checked for UTI, I have heard many tales of mental issues being made worse by that. And it's quite common. I know it's hard, but it is good that you can check up on them.

I have asked that question to myself and me and my son, who lives there (hes a saint).  Both of us have come to the conclusion that at a certain point, it's better for it to end.   I used to feel bad about thinking that, but that time is in the rearview mirror.

They aren't there any more, particularly my mom.  My dad has lucid times, but they've started getting shorter and shorter lately.  He finally got diagnosed with Alzheimer's about a year ago as well.  We are just trying to keep them comfortable and out of a home till it's time.  My son doesn't want them to go, to die at home, but if it goes on, I may go ahead so he can get on with his life.

We have a day caretaker that comes in 6x10 every week.  They don't have a lot of money, but do have long term care insurance.  Dad has been getting paid for the last two years, but those jackals over at Prudential are fighting us over mom.  In a few months, I think, we can get her approved.  Then we can have a caretaker 24×7.  Me, my don, and my brother are picking up the slack.  I pay my son too, out of my own pocket.  I'm making amends......

I can attest to the power of the UTI to cause the mind to revolt...from personal experience!  I spent 4 days in the hospital a few months ago because of a UTI run amok, and when I first took the ambulance ride to the ER, I don't remember anything about it or my first 12 hours at the ER, including two CAT scans, 8 IV attempts, and one urinary catheter.

Yea my mom had one back in 2018 and had a full on psychotic break.  Luckily I was able to help her through it as they signed me on as primary POA only about three months before.  My dad doesnt appear to have uti symptoms.  His Parkinson's does this to him, more so in the past few months

It is so hard to watch a loved one slowly wind down. You can see the flame of life grow weaker...down to a glow at the base of the wick. You know, soon, a small swirl of smoke will signal the spirit has moved to the next...whatever you call it.
All we can do is reassure them that our love will go with them. And their love will always remain with you.
Even if it doesn't appear they are listening speak to them of your love. And give them permission to travel ahead of you, it will help both of you.
